You maybe having a problem with the entries in the <guide.dat> file.
Here is a snippet of my that file pointing out the different possibilities.
I used <Alt J> to enter the path for the MPCORB data and used a direct entry into
<guide.dat> for the path to UCAC4.
You see that the MPCORB entry has a second line of code associated with it. If you
alter the one line without altering the second one it will not access the data.
Easiest to delete both lines and change by using <Alt J>.
The second possibility for error. Are you sure you have all the UCAC4 data. Check
properties of Folder -- should be: Size 8.29 GB,
Contains 901 files,0 folders
I know the frustration as I struggle with Bits and Bytes but I have a good Guru to
Hope this of some help.
