      What device are you using?
      Is it Pocket PC 2003 or Windows Mobile (5?)?

        Hi Martin,

        I've Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition. Meanwhile I found the issue
        to this problem. I don't use English (United State) settings but Dutch
        (Belgium). When I switch to English the calculation is correct. In
        Dutch setting it is incorrect, probably due to the fact that we have
        another period notation, ie ',' instead of '.'

        I think you should replace the '.' in the period notation of the
        regional settings before setting it as a double. (Or something like
        that, depending on what is possible in .Net)

        Regards,
        Tom.

          Ah, I see.
          I think I might be hard-coding the "." when creating the string (but I might not).
          I will check the code to ensure it uses the correct international symbols everywhere.
          Thanks for the info.

            Hi,
             
            I've looked at the code, and the XML files, and it appears that the problem is that the XML file has "." as the decimal point.
             
            There's a new version of PCGscry which converts the "." in three fields of the XML file to whatever is set as your locale's decimal point.
            This applies to:
                Skills - Ranks
                Equipment - Weight
                Equipment - Cost
