Hi, thanks a lot for the suggestion. Unfortunately, it does not seem to
help much. I have been trying mkcompat by checking one by one all the
options, but Gunrunner seems to continue using its own file manager with
short file names. It might be a combination of settings to be checked,
but the possibilities are too many for the trial and error approach.
Microsoft's site does not offer any help with mkcompat, either.

Would the same procedure that you used for Oligo work for Gene Runner or
it was a different problem not related with long file names? Anybody has
any other suggestion about it?. Thanks
