      I created a APRSIS32 sub-directory called NWS-SHP and put everything in it. But it really could be anywhere and called anything if you wish.

      Are you putting them into the same directory as the .exe file?  Mine are in a subdirectory.

      Hi Mike,

      If you haven't, unzip all files into your folder. That fixed it for me. I had only the SHP and DBF files but added the SHX and PRJ.

      Best regards,

      Same here, Lynn. 

      I’ll send my XML file direct.

      "Show Me" shuts down APSRISI32. When I restart it, the ALL is checked.

      Also be aware that if you do a "show me", the NWS/All gets checked, be sure to un-check when your done(if you want to).
