RootsMagic 5.0.4 and Wine

02 November 2012 - 11:27 AM

We are new to RootsMagic, but we have been using it for a few months. After installing Wine on our Mac (10.6.8), RootsMagic 5.0.2.1 seemed to be running fine. However, when it asked us to upgrade to 5.0.4.1, RootsMagic completely stopped working. It seems to be missing GDI+. Looking around the web, it appears that GDI+ is an old graphics system from back in the early 2000s. Because it is so old, wine is not supporting it. Why would you suddenly start using a depricated dll? Do you plan to fix this problem in future versions? For now, I have backed down to 5.0.2.1 and it seems to be working again.
