RASAPI32.DLL is a Microsoft DLL which is included in its later releases of its Windows operating systems when Remote Access Service (RAS) is installed. By default on most Windows installation, RAS is automatically installed. However, some installation of Windows with just high speed Internet Access (Cable, DSL, T1, etc), RAS is not installed. You should ask your system administrator to install RAS before you can use our Remote Router Access Client or Remote Updater software. If your system is Windows NT4.0, you may alternatively click here to download RASAPI32.DLL, then copy it to your WINDOWS\SYSTEM directory.

Gerber data does not display correctly in GC-PREVIEW.

 
The 274X Gerber format has provisions for decimal format for aperture data entry and X:Y coordinate data entry. Some Gerber viewers, noticeably GC-PREVIEW interprets the decimal format to include all data (aperture & coordinates) which will cause data generated in GerPlot to display incorrectly. You can fix this problem by deleting the "D" from the second line in the data file generated by GerPlot - i.e. change %FSDAX23Y23*% to %FSAX23Y23*%.
