I have just uploaded a new version of the test binaries to the above
location. Before that version the binaries contained lots of patches
that were not yet in CVS because I compiled them from my standard Wine
tree. Now I am using a separate Wine tree so the binaries are compiled
from a clean CVS tree. Also, now the page will tell you when the file has last been updated. Currrently it reads: -- Sunday, 05-Jan-2003 04:32:51 MET -- 1.1M

So the tests should match Wine's CVS as of 2003/01/05, and the file is
1.1MB in size.

I'm not sure about Cygwin but it's theoretically possible to
cross-compile them on Linux to generated Windows binaries. However there
were issues with that last time I tried:
 * the binaries failed to work on Win9x
 * just tried now and I get:

i586-mingw32msvc-gcc dsound.cross.o testlist.cross.o -o
dsound_crosstest.exe -L../../../dlls  -ldsound -luser32 -lkernel32 -lm
../../../dlls/libmsvcrt.a(ds00425.o)(.text+0x0): multiple definition of

Good question. Thanks for asking<g>. I added the following to the page:

So basically what needs to be done for 'incorrect tests' (previously
'invalid tests') is to fix the test so that it works on Windows and send
the patch to wine-patches. Then the tests can be run again on the
various Windows platforms and if it checks out on all of them its result
under Wine can be considered.
