OK, that checks - I know the program does use DAO.

As to native DCOM - when I tried to install it, it barfed. But...

Yes, I am - I was under the impression that would give a better shot at 
compatability since, when there is a mutually exclusive choice between 
the 9X and the NT way, Wine tends to follow the NT way.

So you are suggesting that I attempt to re-install the Win98 DCOM 
package? Should I change the ole* overrides to "native,builtin", and if 
so, should I do so before or after installing the DCOM package? Should I 
also change the Winver to 98, and if so, should I do so for all 
programs, just the DCOM installer, or for the DCOM install + Mng6?
