What works

Everything when installed in own wineprefix.

I did this by using winetricks to install Firefox browser then opened terminal to degug.

At this point I copied behold setup file and it installed perfectly. I obtained a 45 day license key from website  which installed fine.

All the links worked including .jpg, .gif, .txt but .tiff files would not open require an app to do this.

It also installed in crossover with all the media files opening as expected: this is the easiest option by far.

What does not

In the standard .wine prefix it installed perfectly as above. However .jpg & .gif files tried to call iexplore.exe and generated an error. This was rectified by installin Behold in its own prefix as described above.

However, even with this install all the links in an html export file worked perfectly.


What was not tested

Bit of program I do not know about. However, I expect most things will work.

Additional Comments

I am impressed with this program as it allowed me to work out what GRAMPS was doing after I imported my TMG7 database (The Master Genealogist). It showed me every linked note and I could work out which were embedded by looking at the GEDCOM file. However, I did have to work from a GEDCOM file which was exported by GRAMPS. I could also compare this with one exported by TMG to see the differences/ It gave me a complete picture of "Everything" for each individual which is indispensible. I tried Genealogyl and it only gave views of selected parts of GEDCOM file as far as I could see which were much less useful
