A quicker thing to try before this is to "Create DOS Images".
When changing the locale settings Merge is supposed to do this
automatically, but the early Merge 4 versions did not, so with
those versions you have to do this step by hand.
Quote:> re-installing will reset everything to "factory
Removing and reinstalling Merge does not reset things to "factory default".
All settings are saved (or not removed) when the Merge package is removed.
Then when when you reinstall Merge, all your settings are put back
the way they were. (Even the DOS that you had installed is
automatically re-installed.) The assumption is that the only
reason anyone would want or need to remove Merge is to install
a later version. :)
