[Snort-users] Snort 1.8.5 on Win32 problem

You are using a custom setup. Try setting the IDS up from scratch and it
will guide you through the process of how Snort interacts with the complete
system. There are instance where there will not be an alert.ids file
created, like when you specify in the snort.conf:

output database alert .....

I know but this happens with later installations of Snort (1.9.1 and 2.0.0).
There's still no alert.ids to be found.

Snort 1.8.5 come on, really, your joking? If not you might want to do a
search or check the net for current versions.

I installed it on my W2K machine, ran Idcenter, but it can't find the
alerts.ids. 
When I click on Start Snort, it keeps asking me to "Generate a script
first". 
What's the problem?
