Re: Win XP and KCT / Instantrack

Hi Bert,

I installed Instant Track ver. 1.50 on a Windows XP computer.  The map
screen (selection 2) did not function properly.  The map and the text below
did not update; they were frozen.  The various letter commands ,P, Z, & Q
did  not work.  Had to use Ctl-Alt-Delete to quit the program. Selection 1
(Text screen) worked okay.

Paul Williamson KB5MU suggested I try  1. ALT-Enter.  However, this threw me
out of the program.
and 2.  Ctl-Enter. Nothing happened.  I could not quit unless I used

Paul then responded with another suggestion that I have lost.  However, the
program started running correctly upon another try. I  do not know why!
