guess I'll have to run it under QB4.5 until I understand all the ins and outs of Nexus 13 and then look around for a replacement library so I can move my code to QB7.1 if you have the .Lib file you can extract the .Obj files to recompile in the PDS using the program Lib.exe, Here you can read how. ...
