Then: >REDIRECT ADD ROUTE.SYS "/data/mcidas" >REDIRECT: Done There should be no trailing quote on the invocation command line. The command that should be run is: REDIRECT ADD ROUTE.SYS "/data/mcidas To verify that the REDIRECTion worked, run: DMAP ROUTE.SYS You should get back a listing like: DMAP ROUTE.SYS PERM SIZE LAST CHANGED FILENAME DIRECTORY ---- --------- ------------ --------- --------- -rw- 15616 Sep 21 16:55 ROUTE.SYS data/mcidas 15616 bytes in 1 files The LAST CHANGED (and potentially SIZE) will be different, but the DMAP output will tell you if your McIDAS-X session "sees" the file. >ROUTE REL UI UV UW >ROUTE: Product file does not exist: See ROUTE INIT > >What does this mean? It means that the REDIRECT command did not work. Try running the command without the trailing quote and then the DMAP command. If you see the file in the DMAP listing, and if the file is really writable by 'mcidas', you should be able to alter its contents (e.g., RELease products). Tom
