The program does not handle long directory names when unzipping
Bris or TSN files. Limit all directory
and subdirectory names to a maximum of 8 characters.
The program does not like spaces in any directory name. Use
\TSNdata, not \TSN Data.
Many users have trouble moving PKUNZIP.EXE to their Bris or TSN
data directory. To do so: (1) Insert the
CD - it will try to install but click Cancel... (2) Use My
Computer, right click on the CD drive, and choose Open to see the
contents of the CD... (3) From the \PKWare directory, copy the
file PKZ204G.EXE to your Bris or TSN directory... (4) Double click
on the file in the Bris or TSN directory to unpack the contents...
(5) Verify that you now have PKUNZIP.EXE on that directory.
The program builds an array of potential race cards prior to
importing... and depending on other programs running, the size of
this array could cause the program to abort (it takes hundreds of
race cards in the same directory to cause this). To
avoid this problem, you should periodically archive old race
Formulator users: When
you export your race cards from Formulator, DO NOT include column
Bris users: If
you use both Bris Single files and Bris Multi files, DO NOT store
them in the same directory.
