MYOB Premier

G'day all,

I'm getting closer to realising my dream of running MYOB (an Australian 
accounting package - used by 2 in 5 Aust small business) under WINE.

On startup, as the different pull-down menus begin to manifest, I get 
the following message appear on screen: (from MYOB)

"FALT is needs that bit cleared" with an OK box. I must say, I 
absolutely *love* the grammar in the error box.

Simultaneously, the wine debugger shows:

fixme:accel:CreateAcceleratorTableA should check that the accelerator 
descriptions are valid, return NULL and SetLastError() if not.

Clicking OK results in a repeat of the above, 48 times in total. (I 
won't bother posting the log, as it is *exactly* the same as the above, 
48 times in a row. :-)

I'm not a programmer, so it doesn't mean much to me. At this stage I 
have only tried it with the builtin dlls, I will try native later on today.

Any ideas on what this is and what I can do to track down and squash the 
bug? It's not exactly crippling, however nobody will want to run the 
package under WINE if they have to click on the error 48 times before 
they can get in! :)

Thanks in advance.
