After the option change (see below) from default in the program, it seems to work normally
btw, this was Brothers Keeper 7.4.3 but should work for previous versions
What does not
When you update a date field in an event (birth, death, etc) for a person, the program will hang when you try to get out of that person.
Of course the normal, make sure you have vb6run (Visual Basic Runtime v6) installed since this a visual basic app.
Had a small problem during install, a screen came back, seemingly, blank. But if you just slowly hit the enter button 4 times, it will proceed with a normal install.
Important>> Once you install the software, there is an option that you need to check to make it work normally.
Go into person edit, select Option in the lower right corner of the screen and click on "When you tab to a location, do not set the cursor blinking" and then click on "Close Options" to save it. The problem this solves is the program hanging after you update a field in an event.
What was not tested
I think I tested most things.
The programs author, John Steed, was very easy to work with and help me find the workaround that got it to work under wine.
