If you recall, I also noted that the NCEP GRID menus would not work
because there is no longer the GRID files in the Unidata-Wisconsin

I will assume that you realize that you will not be able to do the NCEP
functions, and that you are still having problems with running other things
that use ?BGKMAP.  If this is the case, then I suspect that you did not
exit your invocation of the Fkey menu and restart it after running:


If this is true, then the failure is understandable as the menu must resolve
the strings on startup.  If this is not true, I need more information about
how your account is setup to run McIDAS-X.
