Additional Comments

Requires MSVBM60.DLL which is not included. You may manually copy it from a Windows XP partition to c:\windows\system32. With Winetricks in Terminal Winetricks vbrun60 Do not install in the default directory use (C:\BK6) or Brother's Keeper may not find the data files. When Brother's Keeper installs it creates a folder 'C:\Brothers Keeper 6' in the Windows C: drive. Rename it to 'C:\BK6' and delete anything in that folder. When you start BK it will ask if you want to create the folder 'C:\BK6\DATA\' answer 'Yes'. BK will then create all necessary database files.
