Hi,

I have updated StarsWine to use a new engine called 'otvdm'. Download StarsWine here:

https://github.com/stars-4x/starswine/releases

This new release brings some excellent changes:

* Much better integration with Windows 64-bit, if not seamless
* Only 3 MB download!
* None of the bugs from the previous release

But if you should find a bug, please let me know and I'll see if I can't fix it or kick it upstream.

For the curious, otvdm is the 16-bit WINE layer ported natively to Windows 64-bit and is being developed here:

https://github.com/otya128/winevdm

Enjoy!

Note one bug: if it fails to run (missing a DLL or funny 0xc000007b error), you'll need to install VS C++ runtime 2017 (32 bit) found here:

https://aka.ms/vs/15/release/vc_redist.x86.exe

I am working on removing this requirement.

I have removed the requirement for installing the MSVC runtime libraries in the latest release. However, the download is now 2 MB larger! Smile
