Now I can run and debug programs in the IDE (1.0.6) on Win XP !!!!

Though I did not do anything special to get it work, the only things I can
recall is:

I did use the commandline debugger (GDBPASW) for the first time immediatelly
before it started to work, perhaps it initializes something ??

Or perhaps it is because I did change the setting of the .bat file which I
use to launch "fp.exe" (the IDE) to be comptible with Win95. But then I
changed it back to not be compatible, and it still works ???
