OK, so Auctiva's Mr Poster requires MS.NET and therefore won't run in Wine, and
EBay's Turbo Lister isn't worth using.
Can you recommend another auction tool that might be
worth testing in Wine?  There seems to be a big list at

I just tried installing Auctiva Power Tools (even though it might suck :-),
and found that its installer failed while downloading something, so I
filed a bug report:
It wasn't hard to do, and there's a fair chance this bug report
will help get the download problem fixed.
It would be a big help if you could try a few other auction tools under Wine,
and file bugs in Wine's Bugzilla for the ones that don't install or work.
And when you post here about problems with auction tools, please
include a link to the bugzilla page for the problem, if you can.

I have a guide at http://kegel.com/wine/qa if you're willing, but aren't already
familiar with how to help with wine QA.
