What works

Installation program runs, ( have to manually add mfc42.dll and msvcp60.dll from Windows XP to the system32 directory). At the end there is a notice that the program was installed, and "Do you want to run it now?" check box is checked. Say ok, and program runs fine.

What does not

Once you close the program after installation, it will not run again. KDE System Guard shows program is running, but nothing ever comes up on screen. If you run installation program again, and check the "Run Newsrover now" box it will run fine.
