My guess is to free up system RAM. CoWin takes about 5k more than CoGrf, because it doesn’t involve any of the high level menu handling, just the graphics primitives.

If you're using a standard boot from the repo, someone replaced "cowin" with "cogrf" a few years ago and "cogrf" does not support MultiVue's menu system. If you have cogrf (or covdg for that matter) instead of cowin, MultiVue will not run (as well as some other software). I have complained about this several times but it's fell on deaf ears.

>> Cogrf is a simplified version of the windows driver that has only a few bare essentials, and one of things removed is the MultiVue support. Also, if you find you have "covdg", then that definitely does not support MultiVue.
