The most recent release of CC2 does not include the normal screen files.
My apologies, it was an oversight when creating the release installation file.

Attached is a ZIP file containing the screen files.
Extract them into your "CrystalControl2\screens" directory.

Attached is a ZIP file containing a textfile2 plugin update a few Twitter RSS feed screens.

To use the new Twitter screens:

3 - Copy the textfile2 plugin file into your CrystalControl2 directory
4 - Copy the screen files into your CrystalControl2\screen directory
5 - Restart CrystalControl2

Note: The username and password you enter for Twitter will be stored in plain text (non-encrypted) in your CrystalControl2 setup files.
If you are concerned about security, do not use these screen files.
