OK, for those of you who are interested, I found out what was (is)
causing the "Can't open sound card (3)" error. It seems that rttyrite
was configured for a non-existent sound card. Even though I was not
using, nor had I selected a rttyrite window, the sound card selection
was there and selecting a line (blank line) below the existing sound
cards. Once this was corrected to select an existing sound card the
program launched and ran with no error messages. I think I am not going
to go to 18 again as I have no issues with using 15.
