I think you're jumping to conclusions, Rob; here's the info on the
program (from the link)
Full up-to-date collection of the Watchtower Bible & Tracts Society
publications ,including full text of the Bible(very precise "New World
Translation of the Hebrew & Greek Scriptures") with links,also 2-Volume
"Insight on the Scriptures" -- full encyclopedia of all biblical terms
and names,all equipped with full-featured search engine.A powerful tool
for Bible study.(Freely distributed by Jehovah's Wittnesses,no URL
So the program itself appears to be free (libre), even if there's no
website to actually get it from ;-) . Now, naturally what is not freely
distributable is comctrl.dll, but there's no indication that the OP
doesn't have a Windows licence and if Dripple does have such a license,
there's no piracy involved, afaik. I have a Win98 licence, insofar as I
have a retail copy of Win98 that I bought 5 years ago-- I can copy the
comctrl.dll that is on that disk to my Wine installation without
breaking any laws, can't I? (Please tell me if not, so I won't do it
again ;-) ).
