The SCP program uses XML syntax when writing the
project files. Although they have and need the extension .scp
to be picked up by the SCP program, they can, if given an .xml
extension instead, be viewed with XML processing software.
This capability is now available in Internet Explorer release 5.
So if you copy an .scp file and give the copy an extension
of .xml you can view it as a tree structure in Internet
Explorer Release 5. To do that you use the File/Open/Browse All
Files in Explorer 5 and look for .xml extensions.
Similarly the scp.dat file, if say, copied to scp.xml
can be viewed in IE5 in a similar way.
FIX for MSVCR100.dll
When you install SCP you may find that an error occurs indicating
that the application cannot find MSVCR100.dll and asks you to reinstall it.
There is a Microsoft fix for this issue. Download and execute the program vcredist_x86.exe from
the following link.
It is 4.83MB in size.
For the record, vcredist_x86.exe, is a Microsoft written program that installs
some 're-distributable software' that is needed by programs compiled using
Microsoft's 2010 C++ compiler.
