Hi,Clint:

When i was trying to use the PAL v.2.0 beta1.1 to merge 2 *.blg files, it pops out the warning like this below.My platform is XP SP3.  Could you please help me figure that out?  Thanks!

Here's my operation:

As an interim measure while waiting for response from Clint, I suggest you try directly using relog.exe to merge your logs outside of PAL and see if that works ok. You can then supply the merged log to PAL.

From command prompt run something like this:

relog log1.blg log2.blg [repeat as needed for more logs...] -f bin -o mergedLog.blg

If you still get an error, then it's a relog.exe issue and not much PAL can do about it. You'll have to figure out how to get relog to merge them or you can use PAL to report on the logs separately rather than together.
