Almost everything work with a good speed.
Simulation ans simulation of embedded programs, routing and printing work fine.
What does not
Managing tools bars do not work.
Picking a component has a strange behaviour (mad scrolling) but it is usable if you are patient and shrewd. Using keyboard is more easy.
No printing preview.
Some minor display defects (cursor, toolbars,...).
New : Some display refresh problems.
What was not tested
Advanced embedded program simulations.
Conditions of this success testing : Install fonts in .wine/drive_c/windows/fonts/. I hesitate between Sylver and Gold level.

Error : Proteus 8 Access violation in module 'VGDVC.DLL'
go to winetricks, if you don't have it, you can install it :
sudo aptitude install winetricks
sudo apt-get install winetricks
then open the GUI, either from the menu or a console :
then check, "Select the default wineprefix" and press OK.
then check, "Run regedit" and press OK again.
Now go to :
-> Labcenter Electronics
-> Proteus 8 Professional
You should have the key "Default Graphics Mode" set to some particular integer like 3 or 2.
Change that to 1 by clicking on it twice and entering the number 1.
And you're done, this fix have been proven to work for Proteus 8x under Wine 1.8.7 under Debian Stretch. And should also work for other versions.
That was bloody easy wasn't it.
