I can't give you a copy of a proprietary program, that's not how it works.  My
intention was to make it possible for a developer to get access to the
software.  However I suspect that any test scenario for unc paths -- such as
notepad network browsing -- would probably be sufficient for the purpose of
reproducing this problem.

I would love to be able to send WINE gobs of money and have them fix this bug. 
Unfortunately I just am not in the position to be able to do that.  I look
forward to the day when the project/product I am working on (a replacment for
Medisoft) becomes profitable, then I will be able to do it, when my business
becomes successful I plan to be a heavy supporter of open source.  But today is
not that day, and meanwhile I am just a starving computer consultant who did
two weeks of work for six hours of pay, trying to keep one of my customers

It took me two weeks because most of the stuff that was supposed to work did
not actually in fact work...  This is the nightmare of computer software (I'm
talking about all of it especially M$, almost nothing works the way it is
supposed to).  For what it's worth, Vista won't run Medisoft either, so if WINE
would run it you would have a major coup and a major reason for the small
businesses who use Medisoft to migrate to Linux.

If you don't currently feel inspired to fix the bug then please go back to my
original request, which was to fix the docs so that people are not mislead
about the capability of WINE and won't waste their time trying to get something
to work, that the developers know darn well does not actually work.
