So, backtracking on some old problems:

WIth win98 dll and other windows, works fine but filenames do not show in the 
dialog. Setting win98 and the filenames show, but ...

The 16-bit MIDI functionality thunks and that NEVER worked. Need a 32-bit 
windows model to use the program.

I do not have a 32-bit windows available (maybe someone can send me the one 
dll from y2k, maybe XP but there were compatability issues when that came out. 
The versions with wine itself are fake and crash as before.
