Selected Test Results

What works

Tested the Lite (free) version with Japanese. Everything tested works: smart downloader, opening lists, flash cards, sounds, help. Kanji fonts were downloaded and installed by the smart downloader.

What does not

Help files work, but closing help crashes the program. There were some minor graphical glitches on some of the flash cards, but they do not impair the usability of the program.


What was not tested

Downloading additional lists (not downloaded during the initial install).

Additional Comments

Needs native riched20 & riched32; either use winetricks riched20, or copy the dlls from a native Windows partition and set the overrides manually in winecfg. Download the installer with the selected language pack from in order to get all sound, image, and font files needs for the flash cards. Downloading the program only and trying to add these later does not work (this appears to be a limitation of the free version, not a Wine problem).
