[ct-user] CT & XP

Forgive me if this is a known issue -- I suspect it is -- but for the first
time since I bought CT 6.17 at Dayton longer ago than I care to think about,
I ran into a major problem with CT yesterday.

Went to setup CT 10 on the "new" (OK, rebuilt) shack computer so I could run
a little SS for the spare hour or so I had, and it locked up on me during
initial setup.  Never at the same place, but I never got out of the setup

The new computer is running XP Pro SP2.  It replaced a Win98SE box.  Also,
FWIW, I have the CT files stored on my D: drive instead of C: -- D: is a
smaller FAT32 drive instead of an NTFS drive, neccesary to avoid problems
with my primary logging and QSL management routines (written in dBase IV &
Visual dBase 5.7... which, being 16 bit apps, don't handle NTFS long file
names well, but THAT's another story altogether)

SO, two simple questions:
-- Is this a compatibility problem with CT & XP?
-- And if so, should I switch to CTWin?

I really hate to give up on CT.  It may be "old" software, but it's tried,
true, and I'm used to it.
