installation, start, backup on exit all. Downloading lists, sound of words, music, keyboard - all features of BYKI express 4 seem to work so far.
What does not
I have the BYKI deluxe version which also features a pronounciation check using a microphone. The microphone/recording did not work but I only just installed wine and did not play with the audio driver settings yet.
What was not tested
I only had a few minutes time. don t know for sure if learning features work completely.
Needs msls31 urlmon and riched20 to run, obtainable through winetricks. urlmon not available in last winetricks as it used ie6 which caused problem because of its age. I installed winetricks ie7 instead (even though I only use firefox). Installation of younger internet explorer probably supplies the dll too. Performance of some graphics effects in BYKI are a little slower which would probably be unnoticed if you don t know the windows version.
