[Trlog] newbie question

I gather the SPRINT simulator isn't complete.  I am using v6.68 here,
and have a similar problem.  I have a large TRMASTER file from another
with his contest log exchanges in it for data.
If I call CQ NA, no problem.  A station answers me and we complete our
exchanges.  Then
I hear him work another station and then leave the freq.  When the latest
station CQs,
I try to answer him in S&P mode.  Using F1 I send my call when he stops
Then nothing.
So my question is, Is this the right way to try to call a CQing station?
Should I
expect him to reply to me in the simulator?  Or does it only work with me
Thanks and 73

OK folks, I'm trying to move into the 21st century here........

I've got the full version of TRLog 6.73, and I'm trying to run the simulator
in the Sprint (to practice for the upcoming weekend).  When I press F1 or
F2, I get one CQ and then the machine locks up with the disk access light
on.  Only way out is a three finger salute.  I've tried various other
contests (FD, CQWW, etc.) and they work fine.  Running in pure DOS, nothing
fancy, lots of memory showing.
If I just make up calls and exchanges, they enter just fine.  I can change
to S&P mode and back again.  Once I try to call CQ, it's dead.

What am I missing?
