SP LINK queries an SP PRO inverter and the power system (Solar Panels, Grid and batteries)
There are 2 applications. Both work.

SP LINK Monitor :
Connecting to the unit via ethernet IP address and default port 10001
As with previous versions, the following still work...
What does not
SP LINK Monitor ( /Selectronic SP LINK Monitor/SP LINK.exe ):
Compared to last entry...
Unknown , not tested
Downloading the Performance data fails at the last step but selecting continue from the pop up warning allows the application to continue.
A directory is created, the progress bar continues but at the end an exception is raised and no files are saved. It is possibly failing as it expects to start Excel which isn't installed - especially as the Unhandled Exception error message ends with "Attempted to access a missing member"
Unknown , not tested
SP Link - the full installer version (/Selectronic SP LINK/SP LINK.exe ):
This also works.
The comments for the minimal version above also apply here.
The Get SP Pro's Configuration settings appear to work (under "Configuration Settings" tab). Data is fetched, colored highlights display so it appears to have communicated directly with the unit and is reporting appropriately
However ... I'm not brave enough to test whether it writes changes back to the inverter - yet!
None: not relevant to this installation as it was done via an ethernet connection
The comments from the previous version may still apply...
Use a USB-Rs232 converter. - Users of SP-Pro series one are already
using this by default anyway. Then select in the connection tab
"serial" under connection type menu. Try different com port settings or
might work using "Find SP-Pro"
Unfortunately haven't found solution for issues wit saving files
What was not tested
As per previous comments.
The fact that it was a seamless install (once wine-mono was sorted) and that it runs without fault for the vital QuickView and Data View sections means I bump it to Silver level. The graphics are no more sluggish than the vmware alternative.
For the rest I'll resort to the sluggish, resource hogging, vmware installation of the full version - but only because I can't believe it works !
This is all on Debian VERSION="11 (bullseye)"
The debian apt installation of wine had issues with wine-mono not being installed, despite it being so. Rather than do battle with that, and in order to get the latest version of wine...
apt remove wine
Then get the latest direct from winehq as per this very simple youtube run through
dpkg --add-architecture i386
wget -nc https://dl.winehq.org/wine-bui...
apt-key add winehq.key
apt install software-properties-common
apt install --install-recommends winehq-stable
After that was completed succesfully...
wine msiexec /i
then run the desired SP LINK.exe
