Re: [guide-user] lunar phase window

Hi Bill,

Using the 19 April 2012 version, I had problems
with lunar phase tables. Then I remembered that
clicking on .bin extensions lately had started
opening the VLC player. I broke that link
connection. The only problem I have now is that
the "Install to hard drive" dialog box is totally
blank. I checked user .tdf files and the only
one checked is Detailed Cities. Don't know if
this will give you an Aha! moment but sure hope so.
