Whether or not the Swedish Government has declared this 'public' the
original creator has to place it in the public domain in order for
this to be true in the United States.

However, I would like to ask what version of MacOSX you are using?
Leopard (10.5) had a major problem running 16 bit Windows programs.
Snow Leopard and Lion do not have this problem from what I understand.

I also suggest posting messages regarding Wineskin on its support site.
