A new invoice can be created. (with major problem - see below) Items in inventory can be viewed. History can viewed. Report Warehouse can be viewed. A/R accounts can be viewed
What does not
Auto focus on login window doesn't happen. Some fonts display differently - possibly missing windows fonts. When completing an invoice, printing dialog to select how many copies to print does not come up. Software effective hangs at that point. No way out. Inventory Control Module does not close or exit. You can log in and out, but cannot close the program. (main Genesis program, as well as all other modules do close and exit properly) Drop menus appear, but any selection will simply bring you to the next screen where the selection has to be made again. When using windows as the main file server and Genesis running on client machine in Wine: Genesis folder from windows machine must be mounted in fstab. Use Winecfg to set drive type to "automatic" rather than network share. When set to network share, Windows lists the drive letter in the dialog for setting datafile locations in Genesis as "]" rather than a proper drive letter. Genesis then reports an error as "path not found" and promptly crash exits. Setting the drive type to "automatic" gives a proper drive letter to set the data file path to in Genesis.

Garbage rating for now. May be upgraded if solution for printing after invoice creation can be found. More rigorous testing will be forthcoming. Installed fine and invoice printing worked under Wine 1.1.42 with both Ubuntu 9.10 and 10.04. Update to Wine 1.2.6rc breaks installation and printing of invoices. To install in 1.2.6rc the following files are missing in C:/windows/system32 and should be copied there before attempting install: MSVBV60.dll Tab32x30.ocx MFC42.dll ssa3d30.ocx Additionally, winetricks is needed to install OLE support. None of these files or extra support are needed when installing or using under Wine 1.1.42
