installation difficulties

Does anyone know the recipe for humble pie? The difficulties I encountered were all the result of my ham-handed computer skills. All my problems arose from the erroneous installation. I created a folder labeled PCGRIDDS32, and unzipped the file into that. This caused the file commands to be input wr...

installation difficulties

Apparently, my joy was premature. When I followed the procedure recommended, I got the main screen, and I thought I had succeded in installing PCGRIDDS32. Sadly, I find that such is not the case. I was too busy to actually try to use the program until today. The program will not start from the comma...

instllation difficulties

Weasel: Thank you so much for the help. I followed your instructions to the letter, and PCGRIDDS32 is up and running! I cannot believe how easy it was, after all the false starts and frustration I encountered trying it by myself. I should have come to the forum for advice first. Rest assured, that i...

Installation difficulties

Greetings: I desperately need some assistance. I tried to work with PCGRIDDS from an old copy provided by Tim Vasquez. After much heartache, and serious questioning of my computer literacy, I finally got it to run, but was not able to get data. I heard about PCGRIDDS32 here, and was quite excited. I...

Tell me what bug fixes you want

On the subject of bug fixes, the most personally annoying thing I would like to see fixed is the habit of DAWS to return to the original base map whenever I erase the current map that I am working on. I have a nice USA map setup as my basemap, but when I want to view local radar data, I use a Michig...

ver F now expired

Dear Chuck, I downloaded only the originial version when it was released. I downloaded each patch as they became available, and installed them in sequence. There were no duplicate installations. When the extension of the original 30 day trial came out, that is when the problem occured. I had registe...

Ver F expired

Greetings all, My version has expired also. This is somewhat unexpected, as I had already registered my copy of DAWS. I applied the key number Tim gave me before the 'f' patch was installed. No change in the expired status of the program. I trust an acceptable solution will soon be forthcoming, as T...

Upper air data

Yes, I have had some difficulties with the upper air data. However, my problem seems to be too few contours plotting. I can open the same data in DA2000, and the plotting goes just fine, proving that the download was performed properly. I tried the reverse route one time, (downloading with DA2000, t...

Bufkit Maps

Dear Ben and everyone else: I have been successful! I got the map adjusted to show Michigan and its surrounding waters as I wanted. It was more complicated than it needed to be, because when I went back to the Bufkit home page, and scrolled to the very bottom, lo and behold, there was the link to th...

Bufkit mapping software

Greetings: I told you guys that I would probably be back with a new question. I was looking for the mapping software to update the map in BUFKIT. I found one link, but it was not working. Then I found a site and downloaded a file called mapmaker.zip. I downloaded it and tried to run it, but it said ...
