What works

* Installation works with some dll adjustments

(from Frank' corner, based on older version )
Copy the following files to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32:
riched20.dll, download here
msls31.dll, download here
In winecfg set riched20.dll to native for e-sword.exe.

* The program functions reasonably well with features tested.

*Tried out the main windows (Bible, commentary, dictionary)

*Bible reading, devotions, some parameter changes ok.

What does not

<comment drop-down boxes removed since it applied only to wine 0.0.44>

* Display of splash screen was incorrect. First time run, showed an overlayed red area. Another run showed transparent framed box, no part of splash image.


*updates: The combo boxes drop down correctly again in 0.9.45.

*The graphics viewer is (still) broken, but can be forced to work if you do print preview, exit, and click on another tab. [graphics not originally tested by me, but mentioned by another tester]


What was not tested

*Did not test special features like search, etc.

Additional Comments

I used existing/updated wine installation. The riched20.dll problem was already fixed on my system; the other one was presumably necessary for me. The failure of the combo box to display its list is consistent with bug 9517. The combo box appears to work on 0.9.43 but fails on 0.9.44. Update: combo boxes work ok in 0.9.45.
