Yes, this is a "shared library" version of the ACNT program which can be
built with sysgen to
save some space in memory. IIRC, it is linked against some RMSRES.TSK or
library loaded into memory.
Look into the [1,2]STARTUP.CMD file what is done there. It is possible
that some TSKs have to
be installed first (INS cmd).

Things that can happen are:
- the ACNTRES.TSK is not contiguous (PIP [1,2]ACNT*.TSK/LI does not
contain a 'C' in the line
- some of the resident libraries are missing/not INStalled (because on
that turn-key application there were not required)
- the ACNTRES comes from a different OS version
- there are several versions of ACNTRES.TSK in the system dir, and only
an older one works.

Was [7,*] also privileged? I am not sure anymore after several years.
The point may be though that
the password file is actually owned by [1,2] - in this case you might
not be able modify it from [7,21].

I had downloaded them, as well as the ones at John Dundas's site, and
did not find corruptions. The files
at the Australian computer museum are large, though; the first thing I
did was to compress them with an
Adobe Acrobat. There it should have been detected if they were corrupt.
So I guess its you having some

Hmmm, to sysgen a new system, the installation set is required. One
indicator you might have sysgen stuff
on the system is the presence of some [200,200]SYSGEN*.CMD scripts, and
the current configuration
should be in [200,200]SYSSAVED.CMD;*
