Hi everybody !
I'm back ;-)

I've found why WTLib crashed ! [Idea] 

In fact it's always linked to font files. I dunno why but the application cannot load a proper japanese font on startup so the application looks for Wingding.ttf file in order to display smileys instead of characters. 
Here is a screenshot about the smileys displayed ...

But this file is missing in the .wine/c_drive/Windows/Fonts folder. That's why the application shows a popup alert (that cannot be read because japanese font is not displayed) and stop, if we install the application from scratch.

So my first question is : is there another linux font that i can install to replace the wingding one? Or is there a solution to avoid this problem ?

Fortunately, WTLib can use a specified font file under its "preferences" menu.
So I'm now able to see japanese content except some controls like buttons, menus or tree view 's elements.

So my second question is : is it a bug ? Maybe there are some tips to do in order to fix the display or maybe this is actually a missing feature from wine controls ... 

Thank you for your help.
