Well, a colleague has eCos's Windows host-end installed on an NT4 machine 
also, so I could give him the MFC42 from there. However I assumed that this 
file, or at least recent versions of it, cover both platforms, because I 
have programs that claim compatibility with both, and their install media 
have only one version of the file.

I haven't noticed a great deal of difference between NT4, 98SE and Win2k. 
If I had time (how many times do I say that every day) I would investigate 
further. I have a gut feeling that the problem is related to the way the 
tree control is coded.

How about recoding the config tool in Java? :)
