Bill & Dave,

I am running ObjectAda V7.0.232 on WinNT 3.5.1 & 4.0.  My current
project does not have
20 files yet so I ran a test building a new project with the GDIDEMO
files from the win32ada sample files.  There are 21 files and they were
added with no problem or delay.
After configuring the project file every thing compiled with no
problem.  I have only
tried this on NT 3.5.1.  I have seen what appears to be subtle
differences in ObjectAda's
behavior between NT 3.5.1 and 4.0.  One weird thing was building the
Java examples.  I
have not been able to build them on the NT 3.5.1 OS but they seem to
build fine on 4.0.
