Here are the known bugs which have been reported and verified.
Certain characters can potentially cause problems in your data, and we
recommend entering data without using them ---
These characters are: [ ] \
_ ` ^
We have received a verified report from one user whose scenes browser
froze the program when he used scene numbers which contained the [ ] characters
in them. When the brackets were changed to parentheses ( ) the
problems vanished. Interestingly enough, the tree viewers seem not to be
affected by the problem, but browses are. This seems to be a compiler issue,
which has been reported to the manufacturer. In the meantime, we highly
recommend that you do not use these characters in your data entries.
For macintosh users, use VirtualPC 5 or VirtualPC 3 but not VirtualPC 4.
On certain Sony Slimbook computers, the Window menu on the menu bar (tile,
cascade, select window) does not function. Also, if a window is
maximized and then cleared with the "x" box in its upper right, an
extra set of "maximize/restore/exit" boxes remains in the upper
right of the program window, but have no effect. There is no current
workaround for the window menu problem. The extra "box sets"
do not stay on the screen if the window is reduced from full screen to working
size before exiting from the window. This seems to be a problem only in
the 16-bit versions of the programs, not in the standard 32-bit versions.
If you are using a realtek 8029 network card (they're cheap), and Windows 98, you need to upgrade the drivers. The ones included w/ Win98 will corrupt data.
PRS - Play Rehearsal Scheduler
10/16/01 -- Certain rehearsal and activity schedule reports, particularly
those which list characters in the scheduled scenes, may act strangely when more
than one activity involving the same scene name is scheduled for the same
time. The fix for this is addressed in PRS v1.00a, available as a password
protected file elsewhere on this website. All registered users should have
already received this upgrade - as well as its required password - by
email. This file is being kept on the website for those who may require it
at a later date.
We have received a report that there are compatibility issues
between VirtualPC 4.0/ 4.1 (on Mac computers) and all programs written with the
Clarion for Windows compiler -- including PRS and M3s. VirtualPC 3.0,
however, has always worked just fine with PRS and M3s, so if you're mac based
you can stay with VirtualPC 3. If you are going to upgrade, please upgrade to version
5.x, which corrects the problems of the (buggy and short-lived) Virtual PC 4.x

Photo viewers have not yet been implemented for actors, locations, shots,
PTL - Production Tape Library
OsDos - On-Set DOS Utilities
Mouse cursor works properly only in full screen mode when operating through
