      Hi @ all and thanks to the administrators for this great Programm Free!

      This is not really a feature request. More a hope that DelftShip stays Wine-friendly 🙂
      But I don’t know where to place such a question.

      I’m working under Linux and Wine with DelftShip.

      It works quite well, only one thing is annoying:

      In newer Versions, some active Buttons are invisible.
      If you click on the area where the button should be, everything works like it should.

      I know Linux is not supported by DelftshipBV, but may be someone has an idea what is going wrong.

      Thanks to all, William

      Hi William,

      the installation issues that I currently face with the latest DS 5.06 release under Wine are more fundamental than missing a button.
      Whereas my installed DS 4.38.130 runs without the faintest issue under Wine, I don’t even get 5.06 installed.
      When I execute the downloaded DS 5.06 exe setup binary it merely installs the language files, sample files and the manual, but no executable at all.
      I cannot figure out why this is so.
      In the app reference DB on the Wine project website the DS 5 version is listed with highest rating as platinum.
      But they don’t reveal anywhere how the damned thing is installed in the first place.
      Could it be that the Windows installer that is incorporated in the setup exe file is unsuitable for Wine?
      I remember that with my working 4.38 release I then installed a separate zip by simply unpacking it with no need to run a Windows SW installer.
      Is such an archive still available for the DS 5 release?

      Well, I kind of resolved my issue by having had DS 5.06 installed under Windows which produced the DS executable DelftShip.exe itself.
      I then simply needed to copy this binary on to my Linux box where I can now execute it under Wine.
      The only little annoying thing was that I first required a running Windows to obtain the program excutable.
