RTG Bills Version 2.20 includes new features and fixes all known problems in the previous release. (Released January 9, 2008.)
We suggest the use of Windows XP or Windows Vista with this version. While it should work with Windows 98 Second Edition or later, we do not test compatibility with versions of Windows older than XP.
Everything used seems to work with the following limitation, this is a kinda script to install which should explain:
### Get and install winetricks:
# Set your preferences
# Set up wine for RTG Bills using winetricks
WINEPREFIX=~/.Rtgbills winetricks vb6run art2kmin mdac27 wsh56 dcom98;\
# Download RTG Bills from here:
# Or (adjust as required):
WINEPREFIX=~/.Rtgbills wine bills221.exe;\
It seems, for RTG Bills and Timer to run normally set dcom98 dlls "ole32", "oleaut32" & "rpcrt4" to "builtin"; BUT to run any (it seems) of the functions under the "Reports" menu set those dlls to "native, builtin" - some other functions (e.g.: Setup > Bill Formats...; File > Change Matter Number...) will fail with this set up. I guess some clever setup of winecfg could resolve this tooing and froing.
What does not
Nothing tested to date, see above.
What was not tested
The software has been being used for 6 weeks in production and seems to work so far as used.
Requires changes to DLL overrides between use of different features, as above.
