Comment 1 Andreas Bierfert 2007-11-26 02:54:01 EST
Did you try with a clean ~/.wine folder?
Comment 2 morgan read 2007-11-26 15:19:10 EST
It was the first thing I installed post wine install, so I assume yes.  But,
I'll try again after moving the present ~/.wine folder.
Comment 3 morgan read 2007-11-27 05:07:09 EST
Yes, moved the ~/.wine folder - same results
Comment 4 Andreas Bierfert 2008-06-17 05:44:37 EDT
Is this still reproducible with the latest wine version?
Comment 5 morgan read 2008-07-12 09:10:36 EDT

Fixed - thanks

[morgan@morgansmachine Windoze]$ rpm -q wine

btw, Word Viewer 2003 also installs and runs, so I'm using it
