Hi Lachlan,

It is in fact a Microsoft thing - the Regional Settings sets the decimal 
point type depending on the conutry.  Rietica now over writes the setting
(only for Rietica - other programs running at the same time use the 
regional set ting) to be a ".". 

It is a pain in the butt, but avoidable when you now about it.

In the Windows, Control Panel, Regional Settings, check what your computer is set to. In this case, it is on Dutch (standard).

Now try and do something simple like opening a data file in Rietica.

You may get the following Cannot determine datafile format error

Check the file format, but the main reason may be a problem with Rietica and Windows. Getting the latest version of Rietica should fix the problem.
