           Summary: Newer version of wine do not function properly
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.22.
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: critical
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-kernel
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: philip.nystromer at telia.com

I use wine together with ie6 for an important application where my service

considerable time to try to figure out the root cause why these two 
appications can't run properly on my latest wine-0.9.28 installation.

Finally I rolled back to wine-0.9.10 and everything got back to order. My apps 
work again (I tried a few, but not all version between .9.10 and .9.28 with no 

I just would like to convey my frustration over the newer versions of wine. I 
think it is very unfortunate that a new version makes it impossible to use 
applications on wine. Through my root cause search, I recognize that many 
people are in the same situation as I have been. 

Please attend, with high priority, to this general problem. Wine is otherwise 
a blessing.
