Thanks! That took a load from Her mind indeed :-) But can you guess what
She would do if She was in position where She had 1MSEK == 100K$? Hire
some person(s) than could sort up Her books and CD/LP records so they
would be placed as She had them in Her old flat - this new flat She
lives in now suddenly appeared and Her trustee arranged a move to this
new flat - it's on the bottom floor but the old flat was at the TOP in
the adjacent building. So the guys that did the downpacking and putting
up Her beloved books, sci-fi magazines and CD's (the vinyls were in an
old beer "cradle" (here in Sweden the size of beer and soda bottles was
the same namely 33cl so you could easily return the bottles and get
money from the returned bottles). Nowadays very few beer and soda
bottles are standardized, the 50Cl beer bottles are standardized and the
33CC aluminium cans are standardizes so you can return them and get
money back. The moving people just trew in the books, magazines and CD
records in the bookshelfs any which way so now it's a pain in the ass
finding a particular book or CD :-( Her trustee did this because She
don't get any younger and living in flat at the bottom level it's easier
to go outside than to climb three storeys to get to the old flat.

Tnx! But how does She invoke the Profile Manager? Is the command for
this "SMPMW118.EXE -ProfileManager or should it be -Profile? And should
the command be preceeded witn one "-" or "--" a la Linux-style?
