What works


ZinioDeliveryManager(.exe), that downloads magazine's new issues, works fine. It asks for a login/password at the very first run and downloads available magazines correctly.

What does not

ZinioReader(.exe), doesn't work at all. Soon after running, I get "Unhandled page fault on read access" and debugger is started. MyZinioLibrary(.exe), is meant to only open "My Zinio Library" directory that is created in C:\ (or in Documents and Settings, depending on settings) to store downloaded magazines. It does completely nothing when run from console, neither any messages/errors/warnings are reported by wine. It just quits silently. CGMonitor(.exe) - AFIK is meant to be run in systray and monitor for new issues availabale for download. AFIR it used to work soon after installing but I disabled it, thiugh I couldn't run it again since then.


What was not tested

Since the main reader app doesn't start, main functionality (i.e. opening files, reading, and so on) of this application has not been tested at all.

HowTo / Notes


2013-05-03 Admin note: the instructions below are very old and may not apply to current Wine. They are being left here for the benefit of anyone who may wish to test and/or update them.

You need to install the Microsoft version of msxml3 and set Wine to Win98 emulation to get it to work after installation. The symptom of this being necessary is that magazines download correctly, but the software tells you that you don't have a license to view it (the license information is stored in XML files).
