No luck...the softsnd.dll also does not work.  I looked at the debug
output, and it appears that the sound.dll is being searched for, then
found in the following location:


This appears to be correct, but still I get error=21 (I think I could
put a link to any file I want and I'll get the same).  I do notice
earlier in the debug output the following:

0009:Call kernel32.__wine_dll_register_16(597f5e58,597abc3f "sound.drv")

Is that an issue at all?
