[McIDAS #HNQ-544745]: Missing SYSKEY.DAT

Hi Angel,

Long time no hear!

I believe that the file you want is SYSKEY.TAB, not SYSKEY.DAT.

Your Unidata McIDAS installation should still have the distributed copy of
SYSKEY.TAB in the ~mcidas/data directory.  If this file has not been deleted
(likely that it has not), simply copy (not move) it to the directory in which
McIDAS-XCD and ldm-mcidas decoders create their output.  If you don't recall
where this should be, run the following:

<as 'mcidas'>
redirect.k LIST SYSKEY.TAB

This will tell you where your McIDAS installation expects to find the copy of
SYSKEY.TAB that will be updated by decoders.

> Thanks,

No worries.  I hope that things are going well for you!
