Nuts.  The example on the web page is what tripped you up, and it is
not setup in the "standard" manner.  I just changed it to read like the
original way that you had it and what I recommended in my last email.
Sorry about that...

re: making local copy of GINI.CFG into UGAGINI.CFG so it won't get overwritten
with new installs

OK, good.  All that you would have had to do was copy that saved version
back into the ~mcidas/workdata directory.

re: format of GINI files changed

Glad this will be of help.

re: looking at setup on cacimbo2
>Again, there appears to be no need for this.
