You, sir, are a genius. Went and located the file. One line was the location of the new install; the second location was nonexistant--my previous Poser install hadn't had files anywhere near that location. Made the changes, started Poser up, and hey, presto!, my old files showed up. As a second choice of two, but hey, that's minor; I can rearrange or learn to live with as it suits me. Many thanks, sir. I'd name my first born for you 'cept he's in welding training right now and would object most strenuously. :) Davey (I'd "mark this as solution" but I don't see any button for so doing, alas)
