What works

The software installs from disc
Runs fine with the mfc40.dll install
All parts seem to function normally

What does not

Some fonts do not display properly (I believe the font problem is caused by solar fire gold using a bitmap font rather than a truetype. Wine doesn't play well with them. By overwriting the font, one can mostly fix the problem, but a few symbols of the houses will be missing)


What was not tested

Various features I don't often use.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

How to fix after installing from disc normally -- Run in terminal -- cd ~ wget sh winetricks mfc40 cp /usr/share/fonts/truetype/freefont/FreeSans.ttf ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts/Etsans2.fon -- Explanation of the above script -- - Change directory to home folder - download the winetricks file (to the home folder) - use winetricks to install the mfc40.dll required to run visual basic applications - copy a truetype font out of the linux system and use it to overwrite the font used by solar fire. (mostly fixes the font issue)
