Thanks for your assistance and best regards,

Did you enable the SSRLB file plugin?  From the Main Window top drop down
list, the 2nd from the bottom choice is "Plugin Registry".  There are
plugins for SSRL ASCII and SSRL Binary files, and several others.

If I do that, I *can* read in the 2015 Binary file.
