I was running XP Pro, and I guess I could have saved the error file, but
didn't. I have to say that I'm not unhappy to now be using linux...reports
are that it is more stable than any version so far of windows...and somewhat
less expensive (read: free).
The setup was really just "out of the box", meaning that I installed
mandriva, installed the latest version of WINE, and then installed WinSDR
per instructions and it ran without problem. I will, of course, keep
everyone posted of difficulty / success. If there are difficulties, it
might be easier to deal with a simple delete of the wine folder structure -
sort of like a re-install of XP, but only taking 1/20th of the time.
Maybe a port to linux might be an option, especially if it were open-source.
I'll leave that to those much more knowledgeable than me!
