What works

Installation - no problems.

What does not

IBSfont.fon is used to display lines and borders on the screen. As it is a bitmapped windows font it is not displayed and screen is not drawn perfectly...sometimes unreadable.

The program uses a licensing scheme that is documented by IBM that checks for existing users on the network using the same license key and either allows the program to run fully or reduces the functionality to Demonstration Mode which soon hangs.

HowTo / Notes


After installing ERAlink32 you can change the font by following these steps.

Click 'Setup' from the toolbar then 'Character'

Here you can choose a new Font and Size to overcome the tiny font that is default.
Checking off 'Draw Graphics' helps ensure that your outlines are filled in for a more familiar environment.
I am currently using 'Bitstream Vera Sans Mono' and differing sizes depending on my monitor.

After you click ok make sure you click 'File' then 'Save' so it will remember your changes.

EraLink - Possible Webbased solution in pipe
There is potentially a web based version in development that is nearing trial stages. Based on previous applications developed by Reynolds and Reynolds it will most likely only work in Internet Explorer. Since all other web based applications work well in Internet Explorer via Wine I trust this one will too. 
0.9.53 Problem

I recommend not upgrading to 0.9.53 since it creates some graphical errors in the title bars.  Stick with 0.9.52 for now.  I will report on 0.9.54 when it is released.
