I was actually talking about Protel AutoTrax, although they obviously
have a lot in common. AT just has the autoroute and a few
other enhancements over AT.
See Steven Murray's site (http://www.airborn.com.au/easytrax.html) for
links to drivers all the way up ....
I've tried up to 1024*768 here. Personally don't see why you would
want higher than 640*480 - it doesn't improve the real resolution of
the artwork or the zoom-in capability beyond 6*4
