Hi Jim:

It sounds like the binary database file that CT uses to save configuration and
log information.  When you start CT DOS, you have to specify a filename
on the command line or you get that prompt.

Try entering a database file name, for instance the ever-popular

BTW, that is NOT a DOS window.  It is a command Window and will
run many of the same commands as DOS, but it is WindowsXP, not
DOS.  For example, CT (DOS) probably won't work correctly run
from that Window...
