Yes. I do, now. Copy the aforementioned \CFNetwork.resources directory
and its contents (I copied everything, but it may be that types.plist is
sufficient) to whatever directory you copied CoreFoundation.dll. The
file: scheme is now working for me. Bill, you might want to try that.
And someone might want to add that tidbit of info to the wiki. Well, it
*IS* a wiki -- I suppose I could do it...
