What works

  • Installer
  • Application
  • Diagnostics
  • URLs
  • Uninstall (though it leaves the empty Gomez directory behind)

What does not

  • Drawing problems in WinXP mode (used Win7)
  • CPU utilisation in the diagnostics is very wrong
  • All processes run at normal priority (should be idle)
  • taskkill still broken
  • After running for a long time Java can consume 100% CPU when apparently not doing anything. Not sure what's causing it or if it is actually or bug (and if it is a bug if it's a bug in Wine).

Uninstall leaves empty directories behind
Following uninstall of Gómez Peer you will likely be left with a number of empty directories. This is normal behaviour and the same occurs in Windows XP. This is not a Wine bug.
