Our company, TechInvestLab.ru, is developing collaborative application for
planning and scheduling tasks and tracking their execution. The software is
designed to work as a learning environment as well as a production-grade
enterprise system. This software project is part of a broader PraxOS
research and business program, explained in more detail at
http://praxos.ru/index.php/Заглавная_страница#English_PraxOS (this is our
project's wiki site, today mostly in Russian language).

By the end of July we are planning to have an online seminar for early

Could you please tell us whether we are doing something wrong, and what
should be done to achieve correct results. Perhaps you can figure out more
recent and correct image to use, or suggest installing some specific
We run 1.00.18 Croquet image on Windows XP Pro (Toshiba laptop), but the
same problems with creating new class category were registered in other
environments on computers of our team members. Meanwhile we are successfully
developing core application classes in Squeak with the hope to port them
later on into Croquet to take an advantage of collaborative environment and
