Symptom

Cannot store STR file if Software name has embedded newline

If the software name has an embedded newline character, the STR file does not get stored, and a message like "ZENInv - Storer: Error:Unable to parse (section at offset 31312 may not be valid!!)
A Non integer insertion for Language = 1.21
