A reinstall did the trick. I don’t know what got corrupted in the original installation, as all features worked except some of the TDF. All files were in their proper place, but the functions didn’t work. Everything is up and running now. Thanks for the assistance!

When I tried this earlier, I checked the file tdf_list.dat to see which datasets are currently used by Guide. This file (which is a plain text file) also tells you in which tdf-file the dataset is defined. After turning the M31 globulars on, the second line in tdf_list.dat looks like this:


!:\text\m31gc.dat                                       cd_data3.tdf                66280 * M31 Globular clusters


which means that the dataset is defined in cd_data3.tdf. Perhaps this file is missing?


That said, a clean install may not hurt anyway. You don't need to uninstall. Just delete the Guide9 folder (or rename it, to keep a copy in case you are unhappy with the new install). This is one of the biggest pros of Guide in my opinion, the stand alone nature of its install folder. Copy it to another location, and stuff still works.
