Hi Robert and listers,
I've downloadeed the loadstone tools 2010 04 271 file. 
I've decompressed it in
c:loadstonetools
In there i've got a bunch of files like
_socket.pyd
osm.exe
Should I execute this file?
I didn't get the typical loadstone tools files like
loadstone.exe  
and
file_formats.txt
Thanks, Paulo
