If you get a Bad library error when installing a library or calling a program file then it is likely that the error occurred because the file in question is not a tokenised BBC BASIC for Windows program.

To fix this problem, load the affected files into the BBC BASIC editor, choose the File>Save As menu item and choose BBC BASIC File (*.BBC) as the file type and resave the program. This ensures that the program is saved as a correctly tokenised BASIC program.
