winehq-devel 7.15 fixes scroll bar issue.

7.13 and 7.14 versions had a scroll bar issues that affected a number of programs including Pegasus email.
The 7.15 has now resolved the issue. Scroll mouse wheel would work fine in windows and panels, but in some windows or panels,
Using the mouse to click on up/down arrows would do nothing, nor would trying to slide scroll bar.
So, 4.80 is working fine.
WINE and Pegasus

My OS here is FreeBSD 13.1. My GUI is MATE. I have successfully installed WINE-Devel ver 7.1.5 and have built a win32 prefix for Pegasus. Pegasus appears to installs just fine, and I have the desktop Pegasus icon, but even after doing the suggested work-around, it crashes every time I attempt to start it. I'll work on it.

I have Pegasus working fine on Fedora (now 35) with 4.80. At some points the installation would fail if the IERender program was being installed, since it seems to use some feature that wine doesn't support. Doesn't use the iexplorer, but does use featured dll files.
Not sure what exact work arounds you have tried. I use XFCE.
Removing IERender can be done in a couple ways.
1. in PMAIL/Programs directory is an unins000.exe that will uninstall most of the IERender by running it.
That will remove the IERender DLL and most files, but somethings leaves the IER directory and a HTML file.
2. You can manually remove/rename the IERender files and directory.

If IERender doesn't exist, the Pegasus will fall back to using the BEARHTML renderer for html message, but the 4.80 has a bug with BEARHTML in that it wants to have C:\TEMP directory with user having read/write access. Depending of setup in windows that causes issues. I've always had the directory, so don't know exactly what? Solution is to just create the directory in drive_c and that will fix issue. The other option is to also remove the BEARHTML.DLL file. Pegaus default editor is the TER/HTS DLL files and they had major updates with 4.80, so I've taken that route. Only found one minor issue with emails from Amazon that display a little distorted. The have a table inside table inside a table?? Find a missing tag is problem, so have script that will fix that. But it is just a minor cosmetic issue.

Have run into problems with Fedora 35's wine 7.12 that has issue with spinning icon, but winehq 7.13 and 7.14 both work fine, but there is a issue with scroll bar not working with mouse buttons in some causes. Scroll wheel works fine, but is a little slow, so use imwheel to speed up scrolling.

Hope that helps.
