Dear All,

I have used the Windows 2002 version extensively and had few problems, if 
any. I've just upgraded to the latest version and I cannot open any of my 
files, or even create new ones. I have tracked down part of the problem, 
but not all:

I have discovered that the latest windows version of GAP4 cannot handle 
spaces in the path name of a file. I kept on getting an error saying it 
could not find my files, until I replaced all spaces in all folder and 
subfolder names with underscores - that fixed it.

Now at least I can get GAP4 to open when I double-click the .aux file. 
However, I still cannot edit contigs: Although all chromatograms "passed" 
and none are listed in the "failed" file the "edit contig" option is 
greyed out and not accessible. This is only a problem with GAP4 databases 
created in the latest version of PreGap - not with my old databases 
created with the 2002 version. Any ideas?
