The new Prefre.exe (compiled July 20, 2011) will resolve the issue where the old Prefre.exe (compiled July 15, 1999) cannot run if Drainage Design Management System for Windows (DDMSW) is installed on a 64-bit computer. The old Prefre.exe was compiled with a 16-bit compiler and can only run on 32-bit computers. The new Prefre.exe was re-compiled with a 32-bit compiler so can run on both 32-bit and 64-bit computers. Please replace the old Prefre.exe in the DDMSW folder with this new update. This update is optional if the DDMSW is installed on a 32-bit computer.
