Thanks. That worked. After searching the many copies of writelog.ini I 
had stored away (I used to save them per contest) I finally found the 
one buried in the C:\windows directory as you suggested that was being 
discovered. I am mostly reconfigured with a new writelog.ini working ok. 
Only another pass thru it to set the things like Extra band edges, etc.

Good to work you last week end.
