    Which Operating system are you using? I have had no similar problems.

    As well as Tdol's question, could you also make a note of exactly which files can't be found and I will look into it for you.

    Regards,

    Hi -

    I use Win XP Sv pack 2

    the files that come with the download are -

    BC453RTL.DLL

    bgtile.bmp

    BWCC.DLL

    datafile.dat

    DIBDLL16.DLL

    GLOSSARY.EXE

    GLOSSARY.HLP

    Glossary.swd

    GLOSSARY.WFD

    First I get - "ERROR LOADING BACKGROUND BITMAP"

    then I get - "openAt() : Error opening file.

    Then I get that again.

    Then the program opens with a gui with an empty index.

    Re: Glossary Browser

    Firstly, can I just check one thing: Did you unzip the file so that the directory structure was replicated on your harddisk (WinZip's "Use folder names" option should be ticked)? If you did not, then that is why you get these errors. Otherwise, please let me know and we'll try something different.
