Brian,
I'll do that.  Should it be OK if I keep my settings/data from the old install?

Brian,
I have had WD 9.94a running for 3 full days now with no trouble.

What am I missing if I stay at this version?

back that installer up
i.e the file
wdisplay32.exe
put it away somewhere safe
so you can go back to it
latest verison you can plot windchill, and other improvements/fixes
and i want to add a 2nd mesomap soon.
some people have had trouble since 9.97b, which i am trying to find out why, but i think you willbe OK (its been ok for me)

I've dropped back to 9.97c ( win 98 ) no more crashing ( generating error dialog box ) .
Now running over 33 hours ( realtime updates and half hourly FTP updates ) .

I'll keep this version going as a test ( seem to be stable ) .

Brian,
I reloaded 9.97f last night and have two crashes since then.  

At this time I reloaded 9.94a which was stable for 3+ days.
