 Thanks for the info and your kind offer.

 I will do as suggested and get new versions. Since I'm currently in the 
 process of publishing a paper based on data generated by the software, I 
 do not want to change the application right now and risk braking stuff. 
 I'll just use the software on the old computers for now.

 Once this is done, I'll get and compile the new versions, adapt the 
 software and let you know how it worked out.

 Thanks again,
