    Jon,

    I knew I was holding off for a reason, I just didn't know what it was. Now I know!

    No problem--you would have received the updated one in addition to the other!

    (I was unsure as to when the new one was to arrive)

    I take care of my people!

    What is the Illinois CD? Is it a CD with information on Illinois watches? Wrist or Pocket?

    Thanks to 149 member John LaCambria for burning them; to 149 member Russ Snyder for his wonderful idea and invention and for donating his incredible work to chapter 149; and to 149 member Fred Hansen for Illinois updates.

    Message Board Rule

    Under this MB rule I would like to say the the updated Illinois CD, produced by Dr Russ Snyder and John LaCambria, 149 members both, is available to any member, to assist in their research projects on the Illinois Watch Co.

    This great research tool is only available through Chapter 149 for a small donation to Chapter 149 so the chapter can continue provide existing research tools and can develop other projects.

    For more information please contact Jon Hanson, President Chapter 149, either through this MB or on the Chapter 149 MB.

    I have received some comments regarding this thread so by way of explanation I offer the following.

    We do have a broad rule regarding "No for sale" posts.
    However it was never intended to get in the way of promoting legitimate NAWCC chapter volunteer activities that fund horological research.

    Due diligence requires the caveat that such activities must conform fully to NAWCC chapter requirements.

    I have been using this DB for years. For some reason I can no longer access the EA diagrams nor any of the photos. I reinstalled from the CD and still have the same problem. Does anybody know how to fix this problem?
    Thanks

    The problem with the Snyder database is that it has never been upgraded to run on new Microsoft operating systems. I have been able to get the Snyder database to run, more or less functionally, on the latest Windows operating systems by doing this:

    Step One: Copy the following files from the root directory of the disc: VFP6R.DLL, VFP6GRENU.DLL, and BFP6RUN.EXE.

    Step Two: Save those files to the c:\windows\system32 folder.

    Step Three: Copy the entire Illinois folder from the disc.

    Step Four: Save that folder to the root directory of your C:\ drive.

    Step Five: Find illwtch.exe in C:\Illinois\ and right click on it; select send to and click on it. This will create a desktop shortcut to the database.

    Let me know if this works for you.
