I've been trying to get GenoPro to run using Wine. It worked once but now, following an operating system upgrade, it will not. Does anyone have experience running GenoPro beta using WINE?

Please share your expertise.

Thanks
Norman

I finally tried again clearing everything including GenoPro (stable not beta). While reinstalling GenoPro the intstallation program recognized a missing file. I allowed it download that from the GenoPro website (InstallMfcDLL.exe). Installed the file now everything works.

I too am trying to run 1.99c or 2.0 using wine in Kubuntu,
current version. Pentium 4 with 512 Meg Ram.

I can install either and run them a little bit but then something always goes wrong.
In 2.0 the pop up boxes for individuals are hard to write to and are mostly empty
when opening an old data base, except for one letter in each line.
Panning in 1.99 freezes. 2.0 can't generate reports, etc, etc.

Anybody get them to work, completely???

I want to leave Windows but I want to take GenoPro with me.

Thanks in advance,
Panther

GenoPro compatible with Wine (Linux and Mac)

The newly released 2.0.0.5 version of GenoPro has been modified to be functional under Wine (http://www.winehq.org/) and it has been tested with the Linux Operating System. Although not all functionalities of GenoPro are working to their full capacity, you can view and edit your family trees on GenoPro.

Wine claims to be compatible with Mac (Intel based), we would appreciate if some Mac user can test it out and give us feeback about it.

All your comments or questions regarting Linux and Mac compatibility should be posted in our support forum.

There is a conversation regading this issue at All data for a person gets lost when I try to edit.  Unfortunately, I never got feedback.  If you wish to download http://www.genopro.com/download/InstallGenoProWine.exe, you could provide feedback and I will find a workaround to get this bug fixed.

I have never used Linux before but have just got an Asus PC 900 to take around when visiting Record Offices etc.

The instructions to get GenoPro working have been successful; the only problem is that I do not understand the file system enough yet to be sure of finding things. This has been the main hold-up together with finding instructions on downloading Wine. However I now have a very portable version of my data on GenoPro

Minor problem with GenoPro under Wine on an Asus 900. This has a non-standard screen of 1024*600.
I first found a problem with the normal tabbed menu for an individual. In some way this had been changed to show two lines of tabs, which meant that the OK button was hidden by the status bar. As it is possible to hide this the OK button became visible. I wondered if the difference was due to too many tabs and there was a redundant Custom tab.

Opening the Tag Editor revealed a more serious problem in that the OK button was off the screen under all conditions. I have tried winecfg which can emulate a 800*600 screen but this does not help. I have checked that, of course, on a PC 800*600 does not have the problem.

Obviously GenoPro can not know about all hardware. However is it possible to have a key sequence that triggers the OK button?

Trying to run Genopro, which I have used for two years on the old Windows machine, on Linux under WINE. Clicking the genopro.exe icon has no effect. I am using version 2.0.1.6.

I followed the instructions from http://www.genopro.com/download/InstallGenoProWine.exe and GenoPro works on an Asus Eee. Linux has a few additional things to sort out, including setting permissions, usually using Chmod, or something similar. When I look at permissions they are set to Read for all 3 groups, (Owner, group, Others) and Write for Owner. This appears as -rw-r--r-- when I put the cursor over the icon. This data is also on the General tab after a right click on the icon. This also shows Owner: user & Owner group: user.
When you get it running you will need extra Windows files if you want to produce reports
