Hi Alan,

These are the same errors Ken and I saw last October/November.  He did some
work on the program, thought it was working, then it stopped working.  I was 
using Vista-64, Ken might have been using Vista-32.  I have since stopped using
Vista and went back to XP (for a number of unrelated reasons).

I assume Ken will get back to this some day.  For now, I suggest you don't try
to run CT on Vista.
