What works

The installation process works to the end.

What does not

After trying to start the application, wine breaks before any window appears.

After I've installed gdiplus via 'winetricks' the Painter X window appears, but freezes before all menus are loaded.


What was not tested

Because the software couldn't start, there could be no further tests.

Hardware tested
