What works

Loading a Toolbox-format database works, and all search and analysis tabs appear to work properly. (but note font issues below)

What does not

Attempting to directly install in a 64-bit wine prefix will fail. (Installing in a 32-bit wine prefix works.)

This application also requires .Net to be installed in the same prefix; the application asked for .Net 4.6.2, though I did not test if any other versions would suffice.

If you will be working with phonetic data, it is important to have fonts that display your required code points. Choosing a font with appropriate coverage in the "Options" menu of the application is not sufficient, since phonetic information is displayed using system fonts elsewhere in the program. Appropriate system fonts must be selected using winecfg before phonetic information will be displayed properly in all display windows (and even at that, the choice of appropriate system font still seems to be over-ridden for some windows in the program, which will not properly display phonetic characters).


What was not tested

I did not test whether accessing a Fieldworks Language Exporer database worked (neither native Linux FLEX nor FLEx-via-wine); this is a feature of the full Windows version.

Additional Comments
