Hey, folks. I'm continuing to hunt for any explanation for why the fly creation tool isn't working. It's worked on every computer I've tried it on (4, including laptops and desktops, with Windows XP, Vista and 7) and as far as I know it has not worked for anyone else. I'm grasping at straws, but one theory is that the file got corrupted on the web server somehow and that it's worked for me because I had just copied the file between computers rather than downloading it. That's not very likely, especially considering there have been several versions, but in order to rule that out too I've uploaded a new version, downloaded it from the web server to another computer and confirmed that it worked. This time the zip file includes everything the program needs to run, so you can unzip it into a new folder and it should simply work.
If you're among those who have tried the fly creation tool without success, please email me so I can work with you directly.
Here's the new build (again, this one can be unzipped in a new folder):http://www.pishtech.com/vrs_fly_tying_1_14_2011.zip
