garbage again -the latest install does not and did not tell me to rename Tango to Phobos and neither did you . You could have suggested that . You didn't I don't care much merely make the point

Thats garbage John-I readilly admit my mistakes  and there have been a few here 
You want gracious responses go practice in a poofs bar mate- there's plenty in Melb no?

Well I didn't get much real help looking back at what the problems really were  and I hoped that by pasting the compilers output I might get a hand from experienced people with this particular dwt. I still have a problem with the custom control examples which no one has  answered and I am assuming there aren't many knowledgeable people available on here. 

I know now and knew then there would be some problems with dwt. Fully expected that ,but I said before you must give some priority now to getting a clear install page for both windows and unix. 

If someone has a go at me John they are going to get some back quick smart. Just the way I am. I have been downloading and installing what was new stuff for me in D , dsss and dwt/dwtexamples. Ive been trying to get it installed for near 3 weeks and have not got to the end of it yet. At least I'm close.

If I were developing this I would be asking for as much feedback as possible regardless of content , at least till I got it running.
