jl,

There may be copyright issues involved with something like that. If it is shareware perhaps you could find a link on the web where someone could download it.

What is it called, and what does it do?

I think this is the same one. It's free and it comes in handy once in a while.

If any of you are on "America Off Line", there are some good electrical shareware programs available for download through their
download center...FREE
There's an NEC calculator (conduit fill, conductor sizing, transformers, motors,& more), and "Panel 3.0" that does panel cards, load calcs, etc.

I hope you are putting only short cuts on your desktop. If you put applications on the desktop you will begin to fill up your registry. If you screw up the registry your in for a lot of trouble with your computer. sometimes all you can do is reload the operating system to fix the mess.
