Hello Ian & Everyone!!

I am experiencing more or less the same problem - Double click on
icon (hourglass),  hard disk starts running,  icons disappear.  Only
my system does not freeze - I get a General protection fault.  Im am
not quite sure what version of MPLAB I have - I downloaded it from
the web site about 1 or two months ago.  I have since erased the
installation,  all copies of BCCWIN.DLL (or whatever),  and
reinstalled it,  with the same results.  Installation goes fine, no
problems reported.
My system runs on a P100,  16 Mb ram, 1.2 Gb hdd (around 300 Mb free),
etc. etc.

That's about it..

Cheers
   Roland

PS.  The most enjoyable aspect of reading this group everyday is the
fact that there are NO off topic postings, NO stupid arguments on the
operation of capacitors,  and that I get it in a digest form with ALL
the messages present and in the right order - no reply's to original
messages I have not received,  and probably will never receive.  I
find newsgroups very unreliable,  and would be very much in favour of
keeping this list is the form that is is now.

Ok, now I'm really done..
Cheers..
