This advice about wine versions has been precious: it was certainly naive
to install the program with one version of wine and configure it with
another one.  I tried the may version to reinstall dns7, but that couldn't
be done; then I reverted to the july version, and I both installed and
finally configured dns!

Oh joy! My user's files are there, waiting for me!

Now it won't start, but I'm being confident: this thing accepts one more
thing every day, not more; so maybe tomorrow, after a reboot (probably
unneeded, but there seems to be a real addiction about reboot for these
strange animals!), it will run ok, if not I might post the logs...
