Accredo Saturn and Mercury are small to medium business software applications for New Zealand organisations. They provide a range of modules including debtors, invoicing, general ledger etc. Extensive basic-like language scripting make the system flexible & extensible.
Most users have paid from $NZ2,000 to $NZ25,000 for their software, plus installation.
Accredo only officially support Windows workstations, which is what all customers run. There are a number of customers running Linux Samba servers, and these work well, offering better performance.
Accredo are aware of Wine, and are morally supportive, but have not done any particular work on the (otherwise well written) Delphi 2009 application to make it Wine friendly.
Running Accredo day to day under Wine it works well. It's fast, responsive and reliable. All common functions appear to work well, including data entry, reporting, posting, emailing.
Required native DLL's, copy from c:\windows\system32, set in winecfg Libraries
tapi32.dll (and its child rtutils.dll) for TAPI initialisation, even if tapi not used, Accredo does a tapi init when loading accounts receivable.
oleaut32.dll required when doing print PDF to smtp email, which works correctly once the dll is installed.
It correctly pickups the path to data as z: drive (root) when the company menu specifies paths as .\data001\ , from which there is an NFS share to the server.
