We are using version 7 here now as well.

What are the messages?

We have been using the 4.2 compilers as well with no problems.

OK, they should on x86 as well.

Not really, you need to send us more information on what your are seeing
(i.e. the messages that are being emitted by the programs that are failing).

>Any help is appreciated.  Thanks.

The other thing you should do is reissue the command that the Fkey menu
is running from the McIDAS command line adding the DEV=GCC keyword sequence.
This will turn on more verbose logging which will help us determine where
the routine(s) is(are) bombing.
