I think you are going to have to create the files yourself as they are slightly different for the older disc than for the one I have, because mine has more POI categories.

This means you will need a text editor prog and cygwin to run the perl script.

Trust me - it is MUCH easier than it sounds - just follow the instructions here:

The instructions are excellent - just 2 things to note that I thought were not totally clear:

In step 7 - for the TPD-SEV files the values for .idx and .url entries should be the same as the files you create in step 12. Just add 1 to the highest file number that you have. So if you have 00097.idx - it's 00098.idx

Also when downloading cygwin - you need to read carefully to make sure that you select the 'perl' elements and make sure you install it to the directory suggested in the instructions.

I'll send you a PM about the text editor
