George and Jack,

Windows 98 doesn't support an API function named MoveFileEx().  I failed to
spot that before suggesting that Mike use it in his code.  Generally I try
to watch out for such things before we get to writing code.

Hi Jack,
 
Not being a programmer, I've no idea what the issue is with regard to 98 and
ME, but I'm sure the guys will resolve it.
 
George.

That's great, no really.  I'm lucky that ctrl-s is an ingrained habit. In my
neck of the woods if a power pole gets knocked over gets knocked over, we
can be out for forty-eight hours.  It's a bit dissapointing not to be able
to try it, but then nothing really works with win98 anymore.  Is this a set
of routines for the windows kernell or something Mike did?
 
Congratulations.
 
Jack

        Hi Jack,
         
        Just imagine.  You've been working furiously on a document, or
documents, all morning.  You have been so busy, you have forgotten the
golden Ctrl + s rule to save your work.  Suddenly the mains power goes.
Your thunderous issue of expletives blister the paint on the walls.
         
        But thankfully Autosave was turned on by default, so when the power
comes back on again, and you run DBT, you are told that there are one or
more autosaved files.  You ask DBT to open them, and hey presto, there is
your work, and moreover, it is at the stage it was no more than five minutes
before the power went off.
         
        See Global: Autosave Options for the settings, which are fairly self
explanatory.
         
        However at this time, it doesn't work with Windows 98 or Windows ME,
but the Beta log does say this will be fixed before release.
         
        George.

        Back on board finally. Haven't installed this. What's autosave,
anyway. Aplauding duxbury in advance.

                Come on guys!  Where's the round of applause for Duxbury for
including an Autosave?
                 
                I'm sure they'll be happy to pull it, if none of you want
it!  (Smile)
