Re: [guide-user] Re: Getting UCAC4 to show up in Guide

Denis Oct 13 8:45 AM

Put all files z001 to z900 in "c:\guide9\ucac4" folder.

add line to guide.dat file:

UCAC4_PATH=c:\guide9\ucac4

make sure you have "ucac4.tdf" in guide9 folder if download from
http://www.projectpluto.com/new.htm, tdf is in guide9.zip

open "Extras", "Toggle user datasets" and turn on the UCAC-4
