OK, belay my last --

My error. The K4 commands work fine.
About 30 seconds after sending my request for help, I found the problem.
Macros through 10 are reserved for internal Writelog use. I had set
Macro_10 in the ini file to be one of the K3 DVK functions. While that
didn't bother the other macros, it caused problems elsewhere. Once I erased
Macro_10 then the other K4 commands began working as they should.

Please excuse the bandwidth....
