NEWBIE - Oasis Code w/ 3.0bpl11 on Win95.NT - Helllppp!

From: Gerry Smith (

Hello, all.

I am having problems with Oasis and 3.0bpl11 as follows:

Platform - Win95/NT
Circle - 3.0bpl11 
Oasis - .6 patched by hand
Compiler - MCVC++4.1 (nmake)

OEDIT, REDIT, and MEDIT all work flawlessly, but....

ZEDIT - Editing existing zones is fine, but on creating new zones, the fun begins. example: 
	Zone created.
This is where it generates a   'CIRCLE caused an invalid page fault in
module KERNEL32.DLL at 0137:bff782ae' fault and crashes the mud. Same thing if I edit rooms in 39 and do a 
redit save 39. 
Looked at the files on disk. 39.* was created fine, and newindex created, but the code apparently fails in 
zedit.c around:
  /*. Out with the old, in with the new .*/
  rename(new_name, old_name);

I have no idea why since I can manually delete index and rename newindex to index without upsetting the OS.

SEDIT - Don't work at all. Typing SEDIT <vnum> generates an immediate crash as noted above.

I would appreciate any help anyone could give on this. Thanks in advance ;)
