Hi Paul,

I have XP Pro on the new PC.

I looked at the ini file per your suggestion.  Sure enough, it was pointing 
to an empy folder,  c/documents and settings/JEBrown/My 

I copied the USA_Extra.Subbands file into there.  However, when I started 
Writelog, the problem was still there.

What is the "bandmap Subbands" file that you mention?
