Without some modifications to the source, this application is not able to be run. After applying the following patch it does run: http://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-bugs/2011-September/289498.html I have had contact with the developer, and they are interested in seeing this work under Linux. It appears that the feature that requires the TAPI32 is little used. With this patch, and the one required for the UPStart application (reporting the correct features of a COM port), it appears that everything tried so far works. - Creating and modifying a definition file with schedules and devices - Import an export file form UpStart - Switch to the control mode - Connect to UPB devices and interact with them. - Run Upstart
What does not
There is a hints dialog box that comes up quite regularly. While auto-hints are enabled, it is important not to close this since it will cause the application to crash next time it is required, which is pretty much any operation. The hints can be disabled from the help menu (Far right in the menu bar under 'Auto Hint Display').
What was not tested
Interaction with any other devices (insteon, X10 etc). I suspect that with the serial capabilities patch, the other serial devices will be able to work properly.
This still requires modifications to the source in order to work. I was unable to get the demo installer to work. Have been working with the developer, so was able to get my hands on a full version.
