What works

Install works without additional libs, but it will not run without...

MSCOMCTL.OCX needed to be copied to the SYSWOW64 subdirectory.  Registering the file (with regsvr32) is not necessary.

COMCTL32.DLL needs to be copied to SYSTEM32.  Registering the file (with regsvr32) is not necessary.

VBRUN60.EXE installs from WINE installer, but doesn't confirm or indicate a successful install, but apparently works.

Winetricks was used to install packages 1 and 2.

After all pieces in place, all application features work.  

What does not

Fast viewing of HDS sidescan and downscan is laggy, but it works. Turn off Sonar Chart--Auto Depth Range for each window for better performance.

Additional Comments

Perhaps more packages will improve graphics rendering for fast forward log viewing.

HowTo / Notes


Graphics are a little sluggish.  Turn off Auto Depth Range for each window to increase performance.

Click-n-drag selection on the chart for zoom levels: Click-n-drag from 0 feet (top of chart) to 10 feet (bottom reading) to zoom that range.

Sometimes selecting a sonar window will 'grab' the window.  Press ESC to let go of the window.
