The program will only run if I use version nt40, else it gives unhandled
starting debugger.... but the debugger never launches, though I've used it
successfully in the
past and its mapped to a dos drive, and set up in the registry.

Redhat 7.3 up2date.
If I change my keyboard setting in kde from the defaults to, say Canadian or

soemwhere to get around this, even if it doesn't allow me full use of
whatever keyboard I'm actually
