Where can I find BLN2SHP

#2
Hello:

As you may already know, except for very specialized purposes, use of Jim Keir's BLN2SHP appears to have been deprecated in the FS development community in favor of other GUI-based methods of creating FSX CVX vector content via SBuilder, ADE, FSX-KML, etc..

Use of XML2SHP by Winfried Orthmann has apparently also been deprecated for the same reasons... it's easier to create scenery via a 3rd party GUI, and other *.SHP file generation utility *.DLLs have become available for programmers to use.

However, for those using BLN2SHP for a specialized workflow, and for those interested in having a copy for posterity, BLN2SHP is in the BLNMarker package "Programas" by jcboliveira in a thread at simFlight (registered users must login to download):
