Mike, mine doesn't work either, but I don't get the "The procedure number
is out of range" error at all.  Nothing happens.  No network activity at
all, no matter which button I push (the buttons you mention).  It works
fine for NT4 and Win2K.  I'd like to look at the code, but why isn't Win95
even sending anything to the server?
