Hello folks,

I recently had a major computer crash and am now reinstalling software.  My original disc is from about 2000 (ProTrak 1.00)  If I recall correctly, with a disc this old, I had to download a couple of updated files before I could update to the latest version.  Is this correct?  Am I overthinking this?  Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks

You need two updated files

steamloc.cat and gearedloc.cat

If all you use are diesels, you can ignor them for the time being.
