I have some (O.K., several) comments on Enercalc as well, but I would like to wait for Michael Brooks to return from vacation so that he can defend himself. I am certain that Michael would prefer to have these "conversations" held privately, one on one, but I think it would be beneficial to all (users and Enercalc) to have this open discussion since his software is ubiquitous.

Since that upgrade we have had nothing but problems with the new version. I have downloaded all of the updates but still have problems. General protection faults, page faults, complete freeze of the machine, etc. These problems have occurred on 4 different computers in my office. I have sense went back to the old DOS version because it works better (not perfectly). Michael Brooks has not been able to help me with my problems yet. He seems to be "too busy". If anyone else has had similar problems with Enercalc, Let me know. I like the new windows interface but the bugs give me too many headaches. >> I seem to have similar problems. I still use the old DOS version, eventhough as you say it is not perfect. The windows version has nice interface, but is problem ridden. I have downloaded and installed all the patches, but no success. I also find the limitations that I have to print in the bold shadow frame format. I can not save it as a text file and insert into WordPro97. I use large monitor with fine resolution. The Enercal SEL is the only program that I know which does not display properly in the window. You can not resize the window so it make difficult to work with other applications. Consequently, I use DOS version more often than the Windows version. The Fast Frame is a joke too! I do not know which versions are current. I have yet to successfully model a simple 2D frame and see the result. I would like to know if others are happy with competition such as Research Engineers' Struct.etc or some other software. Anand Nene, S. E.
