Solvent Solver: A Calculator for Working with Teas Fractional
Solubility Parameters: update

The Solvent Solver program, available for download on Conservation
OnLine, was written under Windows 98.  Recently, Marko Mard of Evtek
University of Applied Science in Finland identified a problem when
running the program under Windows XP.  When a solvent was selected
from a list the program stopped and displayed "Runtime error 13,
Type mismatch."  The problem is that the program uses a period to
indicate decimal numbers while the Windows configuration run by the
group in Finland uses a comma.

To resolve this issue, a new database file was created that has
commas in place of periods.  Users who encounter this error can
download the file from


This new file should be written over the original database file that
was created when the program was installed.  Users who have not
encountered the "Type mismatch"  problem do not need to make any

Thank you to Marko Mard of the Evtek Help Desk for identifying the
problem and finding the solution.
