W9ZRX discovered that if you rename HF.DTB to HF.DTB.SAV, Win-Test will start using STEW-PERRY.DTB (with a hyphen [-], not a an underscore [_]), pre-fill exchange guessing starts to work.

There is still inconsistency in that STEW_PERRY.DTB can be used for SCP, but STEW-PERRY.DTB will be used for exchange guessing. The published list of contest names uses underscores rather than hyphens.
