Hi Bill,

I read your message but I don't have the tools to do anything about it. I
don't have windows compilers or even a windows machine. Scott wrote the
windows front end so hopefully he finds time to post here, though he is
very busy.

I don't think disabling ASSERT is the right way to go. The ASSERT macros
are there to catch errors, disabling them will simply cause the error to
continue. Are you saying that the problem lies in the ASSERT code itself?

No. The problem isn't in the ASSERT itself and I agree that disabling the
ASSERTs isn't the proper way to go. I was just trying to find a near term
solution until a permanent fix could be created.

I tried downloading the source and following the instructions in the
README.txt file in the win32 directory of the tn5250-0.17.4.tar file. I
made it up to Step 7 in the BUILDING TN5250 section but I couldn't get the
"make" step to work. I got messages about needing InnoSetup2 or something
like that, and I didn't see any references to that in the document so I
figured I better stop before I did some real harm. I just wanted to see
if I could do it.

Thanks for replying to my issue.
