Odd. When you install it, it should have a few source aliases that are
normally installed with dBASE. (dQuery, Samples, etc.). However, any
*custom* items of course won't be there. How could they be?

Did you click the "Add" button before you clicked "Apply"? The "Add"
button should be available (not greyed out) after you enter information
into the entryfields ...
