    First, for WINNT, like other operating systems, ansi.sys must be active. In 
    file:
    c:\winnt\system32\config.nt
    you should add the line
    device=%SystemRoot%\system32\ansi.sys
    and reboot
    
    Second, for the all satellite search...
    If the file "sort.exe" is present in your skymap directory it won't crash 
    when plotting an all satellite search on your screen when using WINNT.
