Also take into consideration that I made all the updates that were suggested by
VS at its startup and there were a couple along the past year. Even right now
there is one pending saying version 16.10.2 is now available that I was about to
click.

I just attached to this reply the requested files since I don't see
povray.beta.test.binaries in the http interface to newsgroups.

I added a couple of files that had similar names but different suffixes.

I never actually saved the files but when I made the conversion the first time
it seems to have done so and remembered the toolset, never asking me again if I
wanted to convert files made from an older version.

Don't hesitate to ask whatever else may be needed, and to my private email also
if you feel it's irrelevant to newsgroups... though most of the times such a
public searchable record can be nice for ulterior use.
