>I had installed Dragon Naturally Speaking under Wine 1.1.7 and earlier, and it was working fine.
>But now under Wine 1.1.9, the result seems to be, that the toolbar for this application first goes into a strange state, where the (Linux) cursor disappears whenever the mouse is positioned over the application's toolbar. And using winecfg to emulate a virtual desktop does not change this behavior. And then, 60 seconds later, the application just dies. The fact that it no longer receives any mouse input, also means that DNS's own settings can't be changed, and microphone input never gets switched on.
>Unfortunately, it's not possible to file a bug report about Dragon Naturally Speaking, because there are about 25 so-called bug reports already, which do not state any bugs.
>The existing bug reports seem to be reports from various users, in which each of them was able to install DNS better than the previous one, and according to each so-called bug report, there was no bug.
>So a real bug report, once again, will not get seen there.
Before filing a bug report, you might try compiling the latest wine version from git, and see if the problem has already been resolved. At some point I had a similar problem to yours with DNS 10 Standard, but it seems to have been taken care of.
