OS: Microsoft Workstation NT 4.0; new install.

Has only MS Office, Netscape, Meeting Maker and Rumba 95 for NT
installed as well as the following:

Sybase SQL Server- CT Library Reference v4.00.5000
- SQLEDIT v10.0.4
- SBPING v10.0.4

I cannot create a new file type for Visual Works; this file type should
be .im. When I try to create it an error is displayed as follows:
extension '.im' is already in use by file type "im_auto_file". Choose
another extension.

I cannot find this referenced file on my hard drive. Does anyone have
any suggestions as I need this file type before I can continue my work.

Thank you.

can you delete the reference to "im" in your registry and try again?
