What was not tested
- To have text displayed correctly I had to override the richedit libraries: 1) download the DLL from the link below: http://www.dlldump.com/cgi-bin/testwrap/downloadcounts.cgi?rt=count&path=dllfiles/R/RICHED20.DLL 2) place the DLL in $HOME/.wine/drive_c/system32 3) open winecfg, go to Library and add a new override for "riched20" - The application only works under ME/2K/XP emulation; under XP emulation webcam and microphone are not recognized; under ME/2K emulation they are recognized but the webcam dispalys only garbage while recording from the microphone causes a crash - Better to use a native linux client! ;-)
