ERALink32 4.2.3 - This is the latest version that does not require Microsoft .NET framework.
Main text-based screens in all areas.
What does not
Proprietary font ibsfont.fon is displayed in only teeny tiny font sizes and is almost unreadable. Graphic-based report downloads are difficult to manipulate due to text size.
What was not tested
Nothing left to test.
To overcome license registration problem, user must install some version of Internet Explorer. I used ies4linux and copied install to default wine directory before installing ERALink32. Everything now works as it should with the exception of the small fonts in rarely used screens.

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.
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.
