If WordPerfect hangs on first startup see the WordPerfect Office X3 AppDB entry for the note “Apparent Hang with only Splash Screen Displayed” for guidance on how to reveal a message box hidden behind a splash screen.
If you reveal a message box that reads:
Entrust initialization file not found: C:\Windows\Entrust.ini
then you have installed the Entrust Security Integration option. If you do not know what this is you almost certainly do not want it.
By default, WordPerfect uses 'enhanced' (Explorer-like) file dialogues. These do not work under Wine. WordPerfect will probably crash opening an existing document or saving a new document unless the enhanced dialogues are disabled first.
Start WordPerfect. Select Settings... under the Tools menu. Select Files... Uncheck the "Use enhanced file dialogs" box. Click OK. Click Close.
