Spotlight User Editor

Post by NormWood » Mon Jul 20, 2015 7:48 am

Hi all, I am looking for Spotlight v4.0, the version in the files area is corrupt and v3.0 will not work with SLBBS 5.02

Thanks

Norm

Hey Norm,


I am running Searchlight 5.1 and Spotlight 3.0 which I downloaded here form the files area.
You have to run the Turbo Pascal TPPatch on it before it will run. You can download it at:

This works for me anyway..

Hope this helps.

I used the one from my original disk and it works but shows no users. The one on here won't patch and gives a "Program too big to fit in memory" error, plus when I rawwrite I get other folders and weird symbols for file names.

I loaded the 3.0 and the the TPPatch.

I then upgraded to ver 4.0 with the Spot Patch, and then used the 4.5 patch to patch the 4.0 version.

I am attaching the Spotlight 4.0 and the 4.5 patch.

Let me know if this does it for you.

Got it updated, thanks, but still not reading. Do you see users? Think it might be a Y2K problem?

I see what your talking about now, did not notice this because I never use it.
It will allow you to add new users but will not show the users list of all your system users on Spot.
I can add a new user and log in fine with an account that is created in Spot, but even after you add
a new users, exit out, then back in it will not list that users either.. Hmm, don't know where to go
from here. Let me know if you come up with anything and I will do the same.
