What works

Installs.  Includes Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable.  Analysis shows that it uses The Complete Genealogy Reporter, TinyMCE WYSIWYG editor, VistaDB, and DotNetZip.

What does not

The Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable(?) leaves a mess of files in c:\.

The "Help > User's Guide" menu item downloads the guide but doesn't open it (.../Program Files/MyHeritage/Bin/UserGuide70.pdf).

Tool bar is partially hidden by task banner below it.

Maps show as a blank page after downloading a bunch of data.  It's a web page so it's probably a problem with the embedded "Genealogy Web Browser" (.../Program Files/MyHeritage/Bin/Browser/Browser.exe).  Right-click menu shows options that remind me of IE but they don't function (which may be normal IE behavior).

Text in the print preview may be cut-off but it doesn't affect the print-out.


What was not tested

Screensaver or slide show.  They both require Adobe Flash.

Additional Comments

Version TCGR requires the Visual Basic 6 runtime. Attempting to generate a report without it results in an error dialog loop that is difficult to escape. Installed with: winetricks vb6run
