Additional Comments

Work arounds are required even for installation. EGA in Wine is seriously crippled & I don't have much hope for this anytime soon.

HowTo / Notes

Installation & Execution Progress Notes

1) INSTALLATION

run wine D:\SETUP.EXE for Windows installer

use same basic installer options as Leisure Suit Larry 7 to get around buggy Sierra installer

will get can't write to file errors during install, so change permissions & continue on:

.wine/drive_c/SIERRA/SQCOL/SQ2/sq2.bat to read/write

.wine/drive_c/SIERRASIERRA/SQCOL/SQ4/sierra.ini to read/write

DDE fails to install icons or menus (see buglist) - so we have to figure out how to run manually

2) EXECUTION

It appears the link created would run C:/SIERRA/SQCOL/SQ1EGA/SQ1.BAT

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/SIERRA/SQCOL/SQ1EGA

so we run wine cmd /c SQ1.BAT

The program displays a cursor and seems to freeze after this point.
