Great program creators. I'm trying to run the Activities on Celestia 161-ED but I keep getting the error saying Line 9 character 1, "The system cannot find the file specified", code 80070002, null. I tried redirecting the hyperlink on the word HERE in the MS Word doc for Activitiy_1&2-161-The_Universe. I put the files: Activity1.vbs, Activity1-161.cfg, celestia-161-ed.exe (I changed the 'ED' to 'ed to match the letter case on the Activity1.vbs file [ which says Shell.run "celestia161-ed.exe --conf Activity1-161.cfg"] with no success), all in the same root folder Celestia161-ED to see if that would help but I can't seem to launch the 1st activity. Celestia-161-ED will run but not through the Activity with scripts and configuration file. Maybe my files are in incorrect locations but it looks like scripts get the current file path name/location. I'm not an expert by any means in scripting, a newbie at best.
I'm not sure if moving vbs files to the Activity-cels folder will have an effect if I pointed the hyperlink to the current location of vbs file. Should the .cfg file be in a specific folder? Is running celestia161-ed and celestia161-ED really different files? The mentioned files are all in the main folder currently. I'm using a 64 bit (install was done to Program Files(x86) folder though), Windows 8 Lenovo Yoga. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Sorry for your troubles. Fortunately, I have just updated the entire Educational page and its add-ons for 2017/2018. All files have been changed. Motherlode should be able to update the education page within a few days max. You will have to discard your old Celestia161-ED.exe directory on your PC (keep whatever extras add-ons you wish), then reinstall the base program, and all of the files and add-ons on the education page. Hopefully, everything should work fine. :smile:
