Hi

I downloaded the DrawGraphics package from David Parks website, but it 
does not seem to load on my computer.
It keeps on giving me
Needs["DrawGraphics`DrawingMaster`"]
 >>Cannot open DrawGraphics`DrawingMaster`
 >>Context DrawGraphics`DrawingMaster` was not created when Needs was 
evaluated

I have saved the file in C:\Program Files\Wolfram 
Research\Mathematica\5.1\AddOns\Applications directory, in fact I have 
other packages by David Park which seem to load without a problem. 
Please advise
