Starting the program (with some native DLLs), settings, opening and displaying graph data.
What does not
Saving a screenshot (hangs the program). Use a native program to capture an image of the window instead.
Files must be opened using the mouse only. Attempting to type a filename in the file dialog and open it that way causes the program to hang.
The program window doesn't show up in the taskbar (this problem may be exclusive to KDE).
What was not tested
To make this work, install vb6run, wsh56, and native_oleaut32 with winetricks. You can do that by running the following command from a terminal: winetricks vb6run wsh56 native_oleaut32
