The PRIOR.SQF is used to tell the program the priority of satellites to
track if more than one is visible.  I just experimented by renaming mine,
and got that message.  I don't know the cause, but your is either damaged or

I use WIN7.  Assuming WIN8 is similar, and you are using CONFIG I ,yours
will be in:

C:\Users\Alan\AppData\Roaming\SatPC32\PRIOR.SQF  (Replace "Alan" with your
account name on your computer.)

You can recover it from your system backups, which I assume you make.
Another way is to use the SATPC32 DATABACKUP program, which will restore
things to the last time you used it.  It will be in the base SATPC32
directory.  A third way will be to get it from the default files which are

C:\Users\Alan\AppData\Roaming\SatPC32\SQF_Files_Eng\PRIOR.SQF  (Replace
"Alan" with your account name on your computer.)

With luck, one of these will work.  Possibly a simpler way to locate the
files is with a good search utility.

While trying to bring up SatPC32 I'm getting an 'error loading Prior.SQF!'
error, then the program shuts down. This just started for no apparent
reason, SatPC32 was working fine. I'm running WIN8. Anyone have any ideas ?
