Hi John and Paul,

I also didn't have the SD.MAP file on my PC, so after a bit of head
scratching and realising that my 'office' PC worked fine with the Windows SD
programs, I started a comparison of Windows settings on the 2 PCs.

Soon spotted that the 'office' PC had more lines in Autoexec.bat and
Config.sys files than 'radio' PC, so started inputting lines. As to be
expected, it was the last one which sorted the problem!

Added the following, but it was the 'keyb uk.............' line which
clinched it, so not sure whether or not the others were necessary - leave
that to the Windows experts!

Config.sys file additions:

Autoexec.bat file additions:
mode con codepage prepare=((850) C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\ega.cpi)
mode con codepage select=850
keyb uk,,C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\keyboard.sys

Also, the @ and # are in the 'right' place and the 'tilde' works!
