I downloaded the OA 7.2 Special Edition last night and tried to
use it.  When I run it, it displays "Not for Commercial use"
and that there are limits to the sizes and number of files.  When
I run the GUI builder it says there are limits also, including no
more that two windows.

So, I tried to compile some of my code and every package that
was over 2000 lines aborted with the error:

    "ERROR: This version of the compiler will not process files
     exceeding 2000 lines."

So, are you sure the right version of the Special Edition is on the
WEB page?  It says 7.2 when you run it so I assume it is.  If you
intended to remove the limits, could you look into it an let me know
when they are removed and a new one is available for download.
