speaking of OLC.  I am using Circle 3.0 BPL 16 on a win98 machine and
cannot find OasisOLC anywhere, i tried some of the ones on and even tried patching on my own but it don't work.  I
need the code to add to and remove from all the files necessary.
basically I need specific instructions for patching my circle version.
if anyone could help me please, i am desperate.
