Ed's, W0YK, and Ron's, N0AT, suggestion of my having a permission issue was
correct.  (OS XP)

When starting up the "RealCTY V10" a window titled "Run As" with a
question, "which user account do you want to use to run this program?"
would show up first.  In the window, "Protect my computer and data from
unauthorized program activity" was checked.  Removed the check and "RealCTY
V10" operation was successfully run.

Thanks for the help.

Happy New Year

  Mike, K4GMH
