Default Missing templates (IW)

I recently re-installed and re-updated GCA after a major system crash, and something appears to be missing: namely, all the templates from GURPS Infinite Worlds. The program tells me that the data set is there, but when I scroll through the template lists, none of the ones from IW show up. I'm pretty sure I've got the most recent update and patch. Is there something I could be overlooking?

It would help if you could tell us which data files you are using.

Perhaps you selected a category that doesn't include the IW templates.

I've tired it with several combinations of data files. Even when the only data sets I load are the Basic Set and Infinite Worlds, the IW templates still don't show up.

I'm not sure what to say here. If you are loading the Infinite Worlds Data File from within the World Books folder in your Data Set there's no reason that the IW Templates shouldn't be showing up. I'd start out by creating a new Data Set and make sure you're loading the Infinite Worlds Data File from the World Books folder.

Actually, you said just enough. Went back, saw what I was doing wrong, and corrected it. (In loading one IW file, I'd overlooked the other one.) Thanks!
