Actually, I was mistaken.  When I specify "nt40" as the Windows version, the
complaints about the VxDs DO go away, but the app still doesn't run and I get
a Windows dialog with a "Dispatcher initialisation error 02" message.   I get
this with wine-20020804 and wine-20020904.

It's no biggie.  I have a WinNT machine at work I can run this app on so I'm
covered..... :)

Thanks again for your help!
