    You need Shape File Manager or Route Riter also has that feature to uncompress and recompress the "S" file.

    The easiest to use is the TK_Utils ZIPPER.exe or ARCHIBALD.exe from the File Library:

    Does Archibald even work with Win7, or is it something I'm doing wrong?

    WOW
    Just switched to win7 and this prompted me to try it.
    My Archibald will open the file but will not display any data.
    Have tried shapes I used to open in Archibald too.

    I have Open Rails working and thought I installed dotnetfix, but do not see it in my programs list.

    You probably need what I need.

    Taken from Readme file on the download:

    Only requirement is that you have 'Microsoft .Net Framework v1.1' or
    later, the name of the installer is 'dotnetfx.exe'.

    Right click and "Run as Administrator."

    Microsoft.NET is being used by many programs and you probably have it on your computer already !

    Check C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET and its folder should be there.

    COPY a MSTS compressed file and PASTE it into your TK_Utils folder. Then drag it over either the Archibald.exe or Zipper.exe and they will open it for looking at its content with any Text editor.

    As has been said, you may have to flag the TK_Utils *.EXE files to run as Administrator.

    Your right, I do have it.

    It opens the file in archibald but this is what I see, no structure.

    Use the ZIPPER.exe and you will see the file size of the *.S file increase.

    You can then open it with any text editor and you will see this below, you could then modify, if you know how to do that.

    Dragging the un-compressed file over the ZIPPER.exe again will compress it.

    I use Win7 and Archibald. I tried the drag 'n drop method, but like Rick got nowhere. I now use File/Open and navigate to the file I want to lok at. This opens the file without uncompressing it and if you make any changes will also save it compressed.
    Beer is not a matter of life or death, it is much more serious than that.
