*Ok I did the above, making a txt file in my home folder, named 
settings.txt and then added the [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\wine\X11 Driver]
"ClientSideWithRender"="N"

Then regedit settings.txt, then I rebooted the system, low, and behold 
it worked...!!!!!!!!!

*As for what Codeweavers site suggested from one user, I do not really 
want to edit my xorg.conf script, then have a problem not being able to 
get X working again...
Yes I know I could make a copy, of the original, and if it didn't work 
then copy back the saved xorg.conf script, but the above fixed my 
problem without going through all of that...

Thanks NoOp for replying once again...
