Thanks for the help. Unfortunately, recompiling the source code does not
change anything. And changing all "." to "," for calculation of melting
profile seems to work, but trying to open the files produced by MELT with
GRAPH still fails.  Any ideas left? I really would need the program!!

Hi Marko.

The binaries for the version on the MeltSim website, were compiled with
Delphi 2 on Windows 98.  Quite a bit has changed since then, especially,
I imagine, multi-lingual interfaces for Windows.

I think the problem *may* be resolved by recompiling MeltSim using a
recent version of Delphi, maybe even on the German version of XP.  The
source code for MeltSim/Windows is available:


And I think you can get the trial version of Delphi for free:


Taofiq Paraiso <tao at nordita.dk> (CC'd) mentioned that he recently
recompiled MeltSim.  You may want to ask him for the binaries to see if
they work any better.
