Additional Comments

Before launching the program, you'll need mfc42. Just copy paste this: wget sh winetricks mfc42 The program will run! For everyday usage, this program is usable. No problems at all :) I rate it gold because there's something that doesn't work (and probably never will :() Admin note: rating changed to conform to the rating definitions.

This application works acceptably the first time it is run after installation, but subsequent attempts to start it fail.

Please use the latest 3.8 RC version, which runs flawlessly out of the box.
