Thanks for your reply. So I was going through the kst handbook and was
trying to use data wizard for a simple plot, but once the file is selected
in the browset window, the selection button doesn't get active at all. I
tried using the command line option but it crashes. What could be problem?
I compiled kst on MS Vs 2005 and QT 4.7.1

Any help would be grateful
