I have created a text file with coordinate points for certain landmarks in the city of Boston. This text file has three comma-delimited columns denoting X, Y, and the name of the location. When I attempt to use the "add delimited text" plugin to add them to QGIS, I get a crash report message from microsoft (I'm running XP) and QGIS shuts down.
I have tried setting the projection information or not, importing my basemap (a tiff file from MassGIS) first or not, turning on "on the fly" projection or not, and nothing seems to affect the problem. Any assistance would be much appreciated.
