Selected Test Results

What works

  • Installation
  • Main application
  • Virus scan (EICAR test was detected)
  • Help

What does not

  • Help --> About claims an unhandled exception and exits. This must be caught by the application and not by Wine.
  • Bundled LiveUpdate hangs. The FTP site is down so there isn't an alternative. After setting the Windows version to Vista, LiveUpdate 3.4 installed, but it just hangs and never loads.
  • Virus scan complains that it cannot read the boot records. This option can be disabled.
  • Trying to read the virus list reports a similar unhanded exception to above but with a “file not found” message, and exits.
  • LU 3.4 claims that I do not have permission to change the config settings.
  • Uninstall fails with a Vis C++ error, but not before removing the uninstall log. I gave up on it.


What was not tested

  • LiveAdvisor - it was always useless
  • Scheduled scans - I doubt they'll work
  • Realtime scanner - definitely won't work

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

There's bound to be other features I have missed but I got sick of the crashes.

Set to NT4.0 before installation but this step may not even be required.

There are a plethora of new bugs for NAV NT and LiveUpdate but that's a task for another time.
