Hello Yong Li,

There is a PDF-file with the Staden Package (Staden
Package\course\windows_docs\course_windows.pdf), it describes very
well how the package works and how you can work with ABI files. It has
many pages so it will take several hours to work through, but in the
end it might save you lot's of time.

But to solve your problem right now, did you select the Estimate Base
Accuracies module in pregap? This module will convert the ABI files
for you into a format GAP4 can work with.

I hope this will help you further,
