Re: User data set problem

olikloes Sep 15, 2012

Hi Pierre, hi Bill,

Pierre, your were missing these user data sets about Wolf-Rayet stars.

I have located the problem.

All these TDF files searching for a directory named "wolf_ray" at the directory "misc_dat" for the data sets. But this directory "wolf_ray" is missing on the DVD. (I have the German version of the DVD). Therefore the TDFs files couldn't locate the data sets and will not be displayed.

Now I have made a directory "wolf_ray" and added all the missing data sets from my GUIDE 8 installation. After adding this directory to "misc_dat", the following (formerly missing) TDFs are added to the list of user added datsets:

WR Stars of Galactic Population I
Wolf-Rayet Galaxies
Wolf-Rayet Galaxies (suspected)
Extra-galactic H II regions
WR Stars of Planetary Nebula


For all users, who are needing these data sets:

I will add the directory "wolf_ray" to the files section of this user-group as a zip-file named "wolf_ray". Unzip to "misc_dat" and after a restart of GUIDE, these user data sets are added to your list. Be sure that you are keeping the directory "wolf_ray".

Kindest regards,

Oliver
