This was explained elsewhere, but it appears to be a faulty driver
installation.  Are you absolutely sure you are using screen 1, subscreen
0?  For my MacIntosh system, it is screen 0, subscreen 0.  UNIX/Linux
usually starts with screen zero and counts up for each screen.  Are you
using a second screen to run this program in?

I came up with:


I think you will have to install .NET 2.0 completely in order for this
.dll to function properly.  There are several things you must do in
order to make it install properly and I highly recommend visiting the
Applications Database entry for .NET 2.0 and read through the how-to on
