Many thanks to the several folks who suggested my newly-discovered XyWin
problem might be excess fonts. I suspect that's exactly the system
change I was looking for that caused XyWin's inability to load. I
finally exceeded XyWin's tolerance with cumulative software
For what it's worth, NBWin swallows my ridiculous font-overload without
a murmur, and I think I'll stop tinkering with its ancestor. For
situations that demand a true Windows wp (rather than a lean DOS
streaker), it may be what you're looking for.
