Hi Jussij,

Thanks for the new beta version. I have installed it and the read-only fix works well now.

I think your response times are fantastic as it is not always like this with other software products around today.

Thanks mate,

Read only mode help

The following command will open file "testfile.txt" and allow me to edit it : "C:\Program Files\Zeus\zeus.exe" testfile.txt but how do I open a file in read only mode from the command line ?
