Please feel free to add any information you think can help other NTP users to solve their problems. To contribute to the knowledge base, please create a new topic that contains a problem and solution (or workaround) pair.
To submit data to the Knowledge Base:
Search the Knowledge Base
- Think of a good topic name. It is recommended to use a name that describes the problem, e.g. an error message. The topic name should comply to the WikiNotation. An sample topic name for the error message Incorrect DLL version W32PTH10.DLL would be IncorrectDllVersionW32PTH10DLL .
- The easiest way to create a new topic is to type in a new topic name into the edit field at the top of each page, press Enter and then click on the Create link at the bottom of the page.
- Edit the new topic or copy & paste the text you already have.
- Select the appropriate items in the NTP.NTP form. See WebForm for details. This allows detailed search in WebSearch later on.
- [Preview Changes] and [Save Changes] when you are done.
Please use the WebSearch
topic to search for a solution to a problem.
