Old test results
The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)

What works
Instruments, effects, sequencing, saving and loading of files/patches/refills, export of MIDI and audio have all been tested and work properly.

What does not
Instrument/effect labels are displayed improperly (text is going off in the wrong direction relative to the label graphic); menus are only accessible via keyboard (Alt + [x-]arrow); program crashes frequently with "Exception: Out of memory" type errors after moderate usage.

What was not tested
Control surfaces, importing MIDI.

Additional Comments

Help figuring out these "out of memory" errors would be greatly appreciated.

As of wine 1.1.30, wine stopped working with an error message "this application cannot run because of an unknown error".

remake the iso
by shnull on Tuesday October 21st 2008, 4:26
mount your image to some dir, then use mkisofs command to rip it into a new iso with the option -V REASON\ 4 with the slash and all ofcourse since you cant just put in a space (but i guess we all know that) ... burn that onto a blank dvd and the install will run fine under wine since it will now recognize the correct disk in the right drive, if you just mount it, it somehow does not recognize at as a dvd in a dvdrom, if the Volume_label is not set correctly it will assume there's another disk in the drive, and that's that ... now if i could only get it to accept the serial number, and the warhammer texture bug gets fixed, i might become an almost happy man.

I'm using my valid serial (which works fine in XP) but keep getting the error "License number was not entered correctly?".

Does anyone have any experience with this? Any advice

NN-XT device (in reason) doesn't display properly if you scroll
by Jim Robert on Saturday June 14th 2008, 16:05
if you expand the NN-XT device to it's maximum view (with the remote editor open and showing the samples) and then you scroll down so only the remote editor is showing and not the main faceplate of the device it renders it without a skin. Everything turns all black.

"Out of memory" glitch
by Owain Jones on Thursday May 8th 2008, 15:07
Reason 4 installed flawlessly for me, and it can open my songs easy enough (albeit having to Ctrl-O instead of being able to choose Open from the File menu), and play them as I would expect it to, with minimal CPU usage.

However, it seems to think it's ran out of memory when I play one file after another. The music will continue playing but the interface will be choppy and take a while to update whilst it's doing so, and eventually bits of graphics start blanking out, and I get "Out of memory" errors and loads of "Unknown exception" dialogue boxes.

Meanwhile the console I'm running it from is throwing millions of
"err:imagelist:ImageList_Create Error creating mask bitmap!"
"err:region:CombineRgn Invalid rgn=(nil)"

come on, ive been using ubuntu for two days and i figured this out

all you need to do is press alt once and then press the down key

and to go to the other menus you just press the left and right keys

Workaround to use the menu bar
by Yonatan Avraham on Tuesday March 18th 2008, 9:56
1. First of all, like mentioned by others, set wine to emulate a virtual desktop in winecfg (under graphics)
2. Run Reason
3. To access the menu items:
a. Click on the "system" menu icon (in the upper left corner). It should open the menu
b. Move the mouse pointer across the system menu, until you can "touch" the help menu (but don't move it off of the system menu until you get to the help menu). It should open the help menu
c. Now you can move the mouse to other menus if you want, e.g. File, etc.

I've tried all permutations of having Window manager involved or not, virtual desktop or otherwise - Reason 4's menus simply dont become active - in fact their entire window manager seems to not like interfacing with my desktop.

Also found that Reason only really runs once unless you pull a series of tricks. Hello dual boot :(

I have this but too.
It's look like focus-bug.
Maybe because Reason set a stay-on-top property on a self window.
To access menus try:
1. Set "Emulate a virtual desktop" in winecfg.
2. Run Reason in Virtual Desktop wine window.
3. Open another window (not wine). Set focus to it.
4. Move mouse to Reason menu (do not change focus!!!!)
5. Now click Alt+Tab (to change a focus to Reason window). Click Mouse Left Button ;) menu is worked!

Menu access bug
by Chulo Verardo on Friday November 2nd 2007, 22:27
Hi! I'll be honest, I would like to make a good report on the bug that i'm experiencing but I have absolutely no clue on what info do you need. So this is what i get: When I try to click on any menu bar icon (File, Edit, etc.) nothing happens, it's as if the buttons do not respond to any command. I'm using the final realese of Propellerhead's Reason 4 with Ubuntu Studio Gusty Gibbon. Let me know if you need more info.

Nonetheless, thanks for doing the amazing job you do!
