The best way to deal with DST is what we did when the time shift spanned 
the CQWW SSB contest. Before the contest set your computer for to UTC 
with DST turned off. Go to the Control Panel and select Data and Time. 
Change time to GMT and unclick the the automatic DST time.

I just trying this on an XP box running CT Win and it seemed to work. 
The editing feature inside the box is clumsy, but does work

CT and CTWin are supposed to be .bin file compatible. After it wouldn't 
load, how did you succeed?. Do you have a copy of the .bin that refused 
to load, for me to debug?
