When working with files in windows there is no difference btw. "chk" and 
"CHK" as extension for a file, however in Linux (possibly also in MAC) 
there is a difference. This is also relevant for EPX versus epx.

It turns out that apparently the new batch processor "epidatacmd" can 
give problems when creating files due to problems of "EPX" versus "epx" 
extensions. WHen using these files on a Linux pc a file with the name 
myfile.EPX will not show up on the "supported files", list in manager or 
client.

Other issues when working with the latest released Manager and 
EntryClient I have found are:
a.
Sometimes "access violation" occurs when I change the setting in Manager 
of "showing variable names" or not.

b.
Sometimes single files created from templates with the epidatacmd 
processor and subsequently combined in the Manager with "import 
structure" cannot be read by EpiDataClient.

These errors will be fixed - these are examples of why testing is 
important on the path to the first public release.

An updated Analysis (build 175) has been placed on the 
http://epidata.dk/testing.php. The only change is adaptation of reading 
epx files with the most recent changes to the epx structure.
