    PFO 5.80 differential correction utility is working under Windows 10, but is giving bad reports, which always tell be that 0% of my positions have been corrected. This is not true, because I’m getting 100% when I open the COR file. I have tried reinstalling multiple times, with multiple downloads of PFO 5.80

      Pathfinder Office v5.80 is a release that was slated with issues. Trimble recommends not installing this version and going to v5.85.
