I am trying to run CompuChem V.5 on a Windows 98 workstation that has been recently added to our network and I keep getting a message:
'TOO MANY OPEN FILES' what does this mean?

I have just registered my copy of CompuChem V.6 ...how does the screen security work?

I am an old user of CompuChem since the days of DOS, I have recently upgraded to version 6 for Windows© but now it seems that whenever I use the 'Enter' key once I have filled in a field the screen I am working on disappears and the changes are saved instead of moving to the next field on the screen, surely his can't be right?

When I cost a certain formulation under the menu option: 'costing/formulations/detailed' or when I run any costing report on formulations or finished goods I get a warning message '...Self referencing intermediate', what is the cause of this?

The stock level of a particular raw material appears to be incorrect under the menu option 'files/raw materials/stock/master file'.
However if I run the report 'reports/raw materials/stock/movements' the theoretical stock level is reported correctly, why is that?

How do I convert my data from CompuChem Version 5 to CompuChem Version 6.0 for Windows© when I upgrade?

How does the batch costing work in CompuChem?
