Ok, sorry about that. For all those who have privately emailed me with requests for the Classic Traveller Utility that was previously mentioned here, it is now in the Software section of the eLibrary.

While I was at it, I also put together a few other utilities that I regularly use and placed them in the eLibrary. They are:

* a starship malfunction utility (based on a JTAS article on the topic)
* a comprehensive CT equipment library (covers weapons, equipment, vehicles, etc.)
* a cargo trade calculator based on the Merchant Prince rules

Currently, I'm guessing that they're going through the approval stage, so the links to the d/l in Software aren't live yet. Hopefully, they'll be available sometime in the next 24-48 hours

Cheers,
Steve

Vb4Run.exe Run-Time .dlls for Visual Basic 4.0 Apps may be useful (or similar dlls) and is about 900kb.

Casey: did you pull it down from the eLibrary, or are you currently evaluating it before it goes live (I can't see it in the Software section yet).

Yah, I'm aware of that issue - the .dll is a remnant from the original programming environment (Win98) that didn't necessarily exist on other platforms. Hated "dll hell", which is why I do all my development these days in Delphi.

The other programs should also be at eLibrary already.

YAY! My CT utility programs are now live at eLibrary! For all those who asked for the CT Utility, it is now available for d/l. [img]smile.gif[/img] [img]smile.gif[/img] [img]smile.gif[/img]

I tried installing the program and got

"Cannot find the source file 'C:\Program Files\CT Utility\\Readme.tx_' to install."

Anyone know what's what?

I made a copy of the readme file and changed the name to Readme.tx_ and it installed fine.

It's crap installation/distribution problems like that which is why I stopped coding in VB.

At least in Delphi, I can compile an application as a complete standalone app.
