pDRAW32 is not dead!

Enquiries are beginning to pour in - quite understandable. However there is a technical reason why the next revision of pDRAW32 is being held back. A new file format will be required to enable new user annotation customization. Several revisions back a file format check was coded into pDRAW32, so that old versions of the executable should refuse to open the new file version but encourage its user to upgrade to the latest revision of pDRAW32. However, while this worked in the development environment, it turned out NOT to work in the compiled program unfortunately this was not discovered until after executables with this code had been released. 

So, to protect you users from old revisions of pDRAW32 from corrupting your data files of the new file format, the new revision of pDRAW32 will not be released until just before the current revision runs out in August 2008. Sorry for the inconvenience and insecurity this may have caused.

Obviously, the new revision of pDRAW32 will be able to read the old file format and will automatically convert it to the new format.

The installation files may not always contain the most recent revision of the pDRAW32 executable or the pDRAW32 restriction enzyme data file. If a more recent version of any of these files exists, you should download it and overwrite the corresponding files in your pDRAW32 installation directory. 

Upgrading files
pDRAW32.EXE revision 1.1.97 (312 kb) Note: 
Upgrading from revision 1.1.75 or before requires
complete reinstallation of the program due to new

new OCX'es added since 1.1.76.
