Hello all,

I think I figured out the problem with CTWin 9.70... You have to put a
diskette in your A: drive or use the NOBACKCOPY command.  The minut it tries
to do an auto backup, it will either lock up or give a windows error
prompting to close the program.  Since I put in the diskette (which I don't
normally use), it seems to be well behaved.
