    What error are you getting when you try and update the nodelist?

    Hello All,

    I have the past two years had difficulties when updating the NODELIST,
    over the change of year, and have had to request a new nodelist, instead
    of updating with a DIFF file.

    Now again, but this time still within the same year.

    Received the NODEDIFF.365 normally, but the NodeListCompiler (PCBNLC.EXE) >doesn't update NODELIST.358.

    All NODEDIFF's have perfectly updated the nodelist during the year.

    The PCBNLC.EXE is dated Feb. 2 1997, and came with the PCB 15.4 Beta.

    Without a working PCBNLC I will apparently have to get a new nodelist
    again for the third time.


    Happy New Year,

    Holger

    None, except the above. That is easily easily overcome by getting a new NODELIST.

    My PCBNLC.EXE is dated May 5 1997 and is run as a DOS application.
    I think that all of us running PCB have the same problem.


    Have a good night,

    I use to run pcboard a long time ago and this is new to me. The best thing
    for now is to download the entire node list or you can ask your hub to send
    it you.

    Good evening Phil,

    I use to run pcboard a long time ago and this is new to me. The best
    thing for now is to download the entire node list or you can ask
    your hub to send it you.

    OTOH, you may have to get a new nodelist only once a year in the case
    the nodelist compiler doesn't support the change of year.

    It was a surprise for me too the first time it happened.


    Have a good night,

    What are you using the Fido nodelist for?
