That is where I came in to this movie - when I execute the DOS version of 
Ct-time from a DOS prompt - it comes back and says CT-time.exe for CT ver 9 
logs . Now its possible the programmer just forgot to change that statement 
line to include ver 10 because the dos-tools folder says its for ver 9 and 
ver 10 .

You state that in Windows it DOES say its for CT ver 10 files.

BUT in DOS when I put in ct-time 08cwss -120 to subtract two hours - I get 
an "interrupt 0DH - general protection fault" and a half page of continuing 
errors .

That is why Chuck said he did a ver 10 to ver 9 change and then ran CT_time 
then a ver 9 to ver 10 to get back to ver 10.

But when I try that I get that my file is NOT a ver 10 file yet it shows a a 
ver 10 file 10.02.002 either from a DOS prompt or running in W98se as a DOS 

All as I said below . Today I will sure be very careful to be sure the time 
is reading right when I start PHSS . I still dunno how I messed it up when I 
set time and did not notice it when I started  CWSS. In fact I only realized 
it when 0300Z came around and I thought it was over and people were still 
running !!! I had two more hours !!!!

So dunno -- 73 de Hank K7HP
