> My problem involves the XtreeGold 3.0 ... installed on a newer Micron 450 using Win 98 second edition. ... after doing a New Date back to 12/26/99 it just will not let me either re-log via Alt/F3 or exit completely, without returning the original 1/1/00 date...

WOW, sounds like a bigger problem with more than just the New Date function!

The most common problem with XTG hanging under Win9x comes from having the configuration (Alt-F10) for 4 Disk Logging Method set to 'Quick'. Set this to 'Standard' instead and see if that helps. I also get hangs and freezes when this is set to 'Quick'.

That must have been Executive Systems, Inc later renamed to XTree Company. See Mathias' excellent history of XTree at http://xtfp.arkanda.net/x20hist.htm

And now we all can get right through to the ZTree programmer (one and only) on the ZTreeWin Forum at http://www.serve.com/vico/bbs1/config.cgi for problems and suggestions.

Good Luck, Mike. Hope this helps.
