Well my work came to a screeching halt when my Builder4 Enterprise
Trial ENDED.   Cant compile InstallMGR without the Professional
or Enterprise Internet Tools.   

Good news is that I got builder5 Professional so I have the Net tools
now permanantly. PROBLEM. I can not compile the 4.0 files without a linker
ERROR in numerous places.   So I guess I now have to wait for you to
upgrade and them make a 5.0 project available for me to start over on...

Compiled in 4.0 fine and crashes under 5.0 with NO CHANGES atleast on my
end. Your milage may vary...

You may wish to change my email address in the list server. I dont remember
but I think it was shayah@gatecom.com.  That account is ending in 1 week.
Please change to shayah@earthlink.net
