Hi Steve.

I just recalled that I had a similar problem with Orbitron and using 
Windows 7 or Vista.
When I downloaded new keps, it wouldn't keep them until the next time a 
started the program.
And Orbitron would complain about old keps. My problem was that I was 
using Windows 7 which has the user access control thingy.
Which means that a normal user doesn't have write privileges everywhere 
on the harddrive. Annoying....
So I had to start the program by right clicking the icon and choose "run 
as administrator".
And after that Orbitron would keep the new keps. I recall that this 
happened to my Vista installation too a while ago after doing a windows 

Don't know what OS you are running, but if you have Vista or Windows 7 
try and run Satpc as administrator instead.
If not, well, others might have the same problem as I had.
