This is a follow-up to my earlier posting about the fact that Vicon
Clinical Manager (VCM) will not run under Windows 2000. I received this
interesting note from Edi Cramp, which I have checked and appears to be true.

Do any of you computer gurus out there (especially ones that work for
Oxford Metrics) have any suggestions - other than not use a printer, or to
keep installing it and removing it again, depending on what software you
want to run?
Please don't email me to tell me how much you hate Microsoft, or that you
don't get problems like this with Linux - these are not constructive
