Hello Steven,

I tried Wine myself but I used Ubuntu on a virtual machine on XP host. I ran
into some problems. You may try. However you must understand that the
Management by Statistics program is a 16 bit programs and uses the WIN.INI
file. It also include 3 dlls files into the WINDOWS folder as well as one more
in the SYSTEM or SYSTEM32 folder. Time only prevented me from further
researching into debugging that issue. I know other people were able to run 16
bit program with Wine. I saw their recommendation but haven’t got time to
browse through them to find the fix I needed in order to run the Management by
Statistics program in Wine.

If you want to do the research here is what you need to now. The Management by
Statistics program installs in three places:

C:\STATSWIN\ is where the program is installed by default.

Those files are installed in the WINDOWS and SYSTEM folder:




C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\BWCC.DLL  (Note: this file sometime is installed in

And the WIN.INI will contain those extra lines:

[Paradox Engine]

UserName=Mgmt by Stats









That’s all there is to know if you use WINE.
