Well, it was just a few month ago when Joachim and me has reworked the
winetools. It is no longer config file based, it is using the registry
now. We have tested it on multiple Linux distributions and the newest
release WineTools 0.9 III hasn't showed serious problems when walking
through the menus as intended.
Joachim says that he has 30.000 downloads per month. That's a big number
and if only one percent of the users has problems, then of course your
hear of them.
And of course mostly users only report when they have problems. Can you
refer these users to the Wine users mailing list? We need detailed
feedback to fix remaining problems.
James, please don't see the value of winetools only from a developers
view. Normal linux users don't want to test builtin dlls, they just want
to get their windows apps working on linux. IMHO it's better for Wine if
the users become an easy feeling of success instead of letting them fall
from one pitball into another.
Thanks for the assistance of Tom and Michael.
