    Today a new bug was reported to me. When your Windows is not set to use the dot as decimal symbol (which is common in many European countries) the resulted SCA file will not compile correct with SCASM. SCASM requires dots.

    This is a similar bug to MakeMDL only working when your system is set to dot. I will try to fix it in a future update, as I think it should work regardless of your windows settings.

    For now the only solution is to change your regional setting or tweak the SCA manual.

    Arno,
    check whether VB does know of system variable named DecimalSeparator and then, when You create strings and befoere You write them to a file, make string replace from DecimalSeparator to '.'.
    Similar is for the date, DateSeparator in case You need.

    Best regards,

    Yes, I need to do something like that. I have done it before in another program, but forgot it in this one. It surprises me that nobody noticed this problem before, I guess most people are using the US settings :).

    New version uploaded, the problem with the regional settings should be solved now. Works with both settings now.
