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
For optimal performances, i have made a dedicated prefix with following commands :
export WINEARCH=win32 winetricks arch=32 prefix=roots8 win10 winetricks prefix=roots8 crypt32 winetricks prefix=roots8 wininet cat >/tmp/browser$$.reg <<EOF Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\DllOverrides] "*crypt32"="builtin,native" "*wininet"="builtin,native" EOF wine regedit /tmp/browser$$.reg rm -f /tmp/browser$$.reg winetricks prefix=roots8 dxvk winetricks prefix=roots8 gdiplus winetricks prefix=roots8 corefonts winetricks prefix=roots8 windowscodecs winetricks prefix=roots8 win10
