I have been watching the excellent videos from Paul re. new Clearwin functionality and I am quite eager to trial the functionality.

When I tried the Clip library, however, I got an empty clip library pane and not the standard one as per video example. I have just installed the latest FTN95 8.4, and the file ClipLib.ini is present.

Could anyone tell me how open the default library from Plato as demo-ed in video.

There are two possibilities that I can think of...

1) ClipLib.ini may need to be in C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Roaming\SilverFrost\FTN95 if it is not already in there.

2) Think that Plato may have had a fault at some point. If you are able to use the 64 bit Plato then you can download latest update from here...

Downloaded new Plato as per point 2 but that did not help

Than I moved ClipLib.ini from C:\Program Files (x86)\Silverfrost\FTN95 to the indicated folder where it replaced a file ClipLib.ini of 0kb.

and that worked.

Thanks

After upgrading Plato as per previous post, all my old projects have now error messages about obj files missing, and I don't understand the name of the object file (I have no routine or source file recompile in this project, for example).

This only happens for x64 builds. For win 32 builds all is fine. However x64 build used to work fine previously

Linking...
***Object file I:\OneDrive\Project\Geothermal\HST3D\Recompile.obj does not exist

other eample on a project that previously just compiler fine

Linking...
***Object file I:\OneDrive\Project\Geothermal\HST3D\HST2D.obj does not exist

I don't know what could cause this.

Try a complete rebuild.

Otherwise are you able to go back to your old Plato to see if that this works?

Did complete rebuild from scratch incl. new project directory and new directory for sources etc. --> Problem NOT solved

Manually reverted to to old Plato version --> Problem NOT solved

Uninstalled FTN completely (ie. uninstalled the update to v8.4 and reinstalled v8.3 from scratch --> problem solved

Than tried to install FTN update v8.4 again --> problem re-occurred

So obviously something goes wrong when I install the most recent update

You could try to install the FTN95 versions into different directories in C:\Program Files (x86)\Silverfrost, then by modifying the environment variables (in SYSTEM) you can switch between versions of FTN95 and PLATO. Be careful to check which version of PLATO you are using. (links in taskbar are direct to a tree name)
This may help to identify if the problem is related to FTN95 Ver 8.4 or other path settings.

Is I:\OneDrive\... valid for your system ?
Alternatively shift the project to a local drive (C:\...)

should that plato update only be used for 64bit, or is it generic ?
Is the problem fixed for 32 bit too, or wasn't it appolicable?
