>My wife needs the good, old SPSS 11.5 installed on Linux. Thanks to this forum, Wine is running as it should. But now I have a problem with SPSS: After starting the program (installation was no problem), I just see the frame of the window (which is empty - I can see the window behind it), and the first dialog screen in the middle of it. Unfortunately the dialog-screen (there you can open a file, create a new one and so on) is gray. No enter, no space - nothing brings me to nomally following screens.
>I hope, that everyone can understand my description. If not:

You can try installing the native riched through winetricks.

You did not state where you are attempting to do this so I will use some old instructions

Open a terminal session:

wget http://www.dankegel.com/wine/winetricks
winetricks riched20

This will install Microsoft's Riched components and switch winecfg to run them as native dlls.

You may also need to install the corefonts, Arial, Times New Roman and Tohoma.  

winetricks corefonts

You will be prompted to accept the license agreement.
