Hi Everyone,

It looks like the USGS FTP site ( ) is 
still not working. The procedure below can be used to import an event report into 
WinQuake. You will need to use this until the FTP site is working again or when I 
have time to work on WinQuake.

1. Make sure WinQuake is not running.

2. Download this file and unzip 
the file into your WinQuake root directory.

3. Open a DOS Box. Start / Run... menu items then type cmd at the prompt.

4. At the command prompt move to the WinQuake directory using the "cd" command. 
Example: "cd \winquake" without the quotes.

5. At the command prompt type "usgsrpt.bat". This should create a file called 
usgs.rpt. The report is from this URL

6. Start Winquake and open the Event Report dialog box.

7. Select "NEIC - Web" in the Type: list box. If you do not see this in the list go 
back to step 1.

8. Now press the "Load Report File" button and select the newly create usgs.rpt file.

9. When you Close the Report Open dialog box you should see events in the list that 
can be used to update your event files.

New subject.

Has anyone tried either WinSDR or WinQuake on Windows 7?
