I would disagree, if it is finding the stuff above. It's not going for
you, and the loaddll trace showed no errors beyond a large number of
native dlls. Is that a 16-bit app? Your chances spiral accordingly.
Is there some copy protection or Something?
It loads a lot of stuff, like it's going to save the world or something.

Did an install complete, or are you running from a CD? I notice a FORD
directory on C: and on F:

Did you adress the f: drive? Then why should the software ever look

you can try wine f:\\setup.exe (or whatever)

Read the help files or try the FORD support. You may need m$ie or some
other kamikaze app. Remove or rename c:\FORD & run 'f:\\setup.exe' from
the xterm. In my experience, such software goes in a straight line and
if it runs into a problem, stops. No development time - the software is
an afterthought. Ford may help you debug it.
