Probably the easiest way to start a new contest is this:

Click the windows icon - get to Run and put CMD in the run window.
Now you have a DOS window.
Get into the log directory (cd \log).
Type TR NEW like you would have done on a DOS machine.

This is probably a better way to get to TR in general instead of using the
shortcut on the desktop.

I am probably not much help here.  Maybe someone else has experience to
share.  I don't consider XP to be support by TR's I/O.
