TLIB has a minor
compatibility issue with recent version of Windows. It seems that they do not allow
Win32 programs to store files in the C:\ root directory, which is where TLIB For Windows
stores its TLIB.INI file by default. If a Win32 program tries to access a file in the C:\
directory, Windows puts the file in the %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\
(That's usually C:\Users\[WindowsUser]\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\)
That can be very confusing. It means that when two different programs look at a file in the
C:\ root folder, they may see completely different files.
The solution is to configure a TLIBINI environment variable, e.g., TLIBINI=C:\MainWorkDir\
to tell TLIB where to store its TLIB.INI file.
This problem also affects the TLIB installer. By default, TLIB installs to C:\TLIB\ but under
recent versions of Windows to make that work you must first manually create the C:\TLIB\ folder,
because if the installer creates the folder it will go in C:\Users\[WindowsUser]\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\
instead of the correct location.

Dropbox fixup tool!
Dropbox burned us! It renamed several dozen current TLIB libraries with
"conflicted copy" in the name (so, for example, TLIB library abc.pl____$ became
"abc (OWNER-PC's conflicted copy 2016-08-02).pl____$"), and replaced them with
old versions: shorter, and with older file dates, with no warning whatsoever.
To fix the mess, you need to compare the current version of each file with the
"conflicted copy" version, and verify that the longer version is the same as
the shorter version, except with additional data appended, and then make the
longer version the current version. So we wrote a little program to do it.
