First, I have succeeded in getting e-Sword to run under Wine. To do so I copied
mfc42.dll from Windows Vista (C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\MFC42.DLL) to
~/.wine/device_c/windows/system32/mfc42.dll and found that was all that was
needed to get it to run. Is anything being done to create a native Wine version
As you state, the graphics portions (e.g. abs, classic, and timelines) of
e-Sword do not work. I get empty e-Sword Graphics Viewer panels. I will have to
run from a terminal session to see if there are any error or warning messages
displayed by Wine during execution of e-Sword. I'll try to get around to that
in the next day or three.
I have downloaded and installed these nine modules from e-Sword:
setup951.exe metre.exe creeds.exe abs.exe timelines.exe
classic.exe jps.exe litv.exe esv.exe
The various Bible translations (e.g. kjv, esv, jps, litv) appear to be working
