What works

Tested version was 8.1.5

Everything i have tested :
import RootsMagic v7 database

export to gedcom
create or modify persons
familysearch interface : transfer to familysearch, import from familysearch

What does not

if windows version in wine is not win10, application loose focus.

application hangs at startup if wininet is not installed

with defaults wine fonts, some texts are truncated

export WINEARCH=win32
winetricks arch=32 prefix=roots8 win10
winetricks prefix=roots8 crypt32
winetricks prefix=roots8 wininet
cat >/tmp/browser$$.reg <<EOF
