Could you tell us which tutorial (not modified) from 4.00/08 does not work 
under Windows?

At first I thought it was because root wasn't recognizing the end of the text file or something. Now, I think the problem may be something else because the program still won't read the data correctly, and the tutorials that came with root that read in data from a file will not run properly either. I get the same error as in my program ("param[0]=[0]" or "illegal number of data points [0]".) I am wondering if I missed something in the set up? Many of the tutorials run fine but others give the errors I mentioned earlier, or "macros...not found in path..."
