           Summary: TSM Casin doesnt start after adding a contact
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.1.0
          Platform: PC-x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: jacobidiego at gmail.com

TSM Casin is a software used mostly in Argentina to send SMS to cellphones
using the services provided by some webpages or sending e-mails.

The software as a development value is a crap, the developer have programmed it
with Visual Basic, have used ActiveX to attach IE to a tiny square so it can
display the Validation image, instead of just comunicating via http, have a
banner in the middle and a lot of cuestionable choices. But it is very usefull
and there isnt any linux similar tool.

It implements a custom Contact list, which is the one that is causing troubles,
everything else works fine, it can send SMS's correctly and IE-ActiveX doesnt
makes any issue.

When adding a contact and after filling all the information required (Name,
Cellphone Company, and Cellphone Number), and clicking start, the window should
close and the name should list on the contact list, but it doesnt close, then
clicking again on OK gives a warnning saying that the contact already exist,
and endeed it was added, so to close the wine i have to press Cancel.

Then i can use the contact list normally with any issue, but after closing TSM
and launching it again, it stays on an unuseful load-screen.

Then to get back TSM it is necessary to remove the created contacts, This is
done by deleting the registry key:

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-4\Software\VB and VBA Program Settings\TSM\Agenda1.0

But copying the cellphones all the time is not a very good aproach.

The download is:
and is freeware with only unharmful banners on it.

There is just 1 post on its forums asking for a linux version:

The developer stays says that windows is standard and linux dont and that wont
be a version for linux.

I know that the best solution would be to develop a real and good open source
application to handle this stuff for all people under the world, but this wont
happen any time soon, and in the mean time, the this problem can be firing a
simple error easy to fix on wine.
