I did not test set-resource. I only need get-resource to get some path
from the registry (this is mainly a workaround on Windows 98 because
InstallShield does not seem to properly set environment variables).
Since I don't want to upgrade to another version of DrScheme (I use the
official v202 distribution), I'll have to find a workaround for this

But if Matthew could tell me what has changed in the wxGetResource function,
I'd be grateful.

Thanks a lot.
