Selected Test Results

What works

Most functions appear to work, including, but not limited to:
- opening and saving existing Origin files
- formating graphs
- modifying datasets
- importing ASCII data
- copying and pasting within Origin
- copying and pasting text from Origin to GNOME (Ubuntu) environment
- Non linear curve fitting wizard
- Exporting graphs to image/PDF format (but possible problems with fonts)
- printing
- connecting to FLEXlm license server

What does not

- importing multiple ASCII files does not work
- certain fonts are not displayed correctly (e.g. Greek symbols)
- the "Graph --> Plot Setup" dialog box may not open or may cause Origin to crash. - Multi-peak fitting seems to bug - copy and paste of graphs from Origin to GNOME environment (Ubuntu). For example, to OpenOffice Writer.


What was not tested

- Origin C programming
- templates
- stuff I don't use in Origin

Additional Comments

The following Windows 2000 dll needs to be overridden for multiple ASCII importing: COMDLG32.DLL (see discussion by other users) (version used for this test: 5.0.3700.6693) msxml3.dll (and possibly msxml3r.dll) is required to avoid crashing when displaying "Plot Setup". Windows fonts should be copied to Wine font directory

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO (native .dlls overrides)

To obtain full functionallity you need to download and place into the Origin program directory three .dlls

msxml3.dll, msxml3r.dll and comdlg32.dll

then in winecfg you need to override with native both comdlg32.dll and msxml3.dll
