have changed the .idl file in the past you used Debian?  I've tried using
wine to do this, but the latest versions of wine are missing the ocidl.idl
file that some of the older versions of wine do have.  I tried install an
older version of wine the one mentioned in the README and it's failing

at every turn.  So, any old notes you can resurrect on how to make this
work are greatly appreciated.

Also, just so you know what I would like to attempt is to add some of the

Thanks again.
