[Newbies] Problems starting demos in wxSqueak

I'm at a loss and know it must be something simple(stupid?).
I've played with Squeak and worked thru Chamon Liu's Smalltalk Objects and Design and done some tutorials.
I thought I'd load wxSqueak and try some of the demos. I'd like to start working with the wxWidgets GUI library. I downloaded to c:\ and unzipped so running in c:\wxsqueak0.4.1-demo directory on WinXP Pro.
Because they didn't exist in the wxSqueak download, I copied Squeak.exe and SqueakFFIPrims.dll from a fresh download of "normal" Squeak 3.8. But date on files are 9/23/2004 and 9/24/2004 respectively and Squeak says version is 3.7.1.
It comes up with a system browser and a Workspace with two items:
Both give callback window: "Error: a primitive has vailed". It fails on
WxLib class>> WxVariantNew
Also, you get a "hand" cursor which invokes "do it" which you click on either one.
I see all the Wx classes, etc., in the browser.
Can someone please get me over this hump?
