Hello,

I have just purchased Optica and am having problems using it... Every time I try to draw a simple system I receive the following errors:

In: DrawSystem[{
LineOfRays[20],
Move[PlanoConvexLens[100, 20, 5], {10, 0, 0}],
Boundary[120]}, PlotType -> TopView]

CompiledFunction::cfn: Numerical error encountered at instruction 2; proceeding with uncompiled evaluation.

Power::infy : Infinite expression 1/0. encountered.

CompiledFunction::cfn: Numerical error encountered at instruction 2; proceeding with uncompiled evaluation.

Power::infy : Infinite expression 1/0. encountered.

etc...

At first I thought this was an error in my coding, but the same thing happens when running a demo from the Mathematica site (Focus.nb).

Is there a patch for Optica? Is there a way I can fix this?

Other Info: I am running Mathematica 4.2...

Thanks for any help,

Alan
