The American Heritage Electronic Dictionary does not work on WINE-6.12

Post by C. Wizard » Sat Jul 17, 2021 11:45 am

FYI:
For many years I have been running an The American Heritage Electronic Dictionary, Third Edition, Version 3.6a" in WINE. Up through WINE 6.1, it has ran perfectly, well, without the pronunciation function, but otherwise as it should.
After installing 6.12, for Slackware64 from Eric Hameleers, at http://www.slackware.com/~alien/slackbu ... 4/current/, the dictionary would open, but I could no longer type in the 'search box, so, therefore, it became worthless.
I've also tried verstion 6.12 from Mr. Simone Giustetti, but the dictionary would not even open.
After reverting to WINE 6.1 (from Mr. Hameleers), the dictionary went back to what passes for "normal" operation.
As a "end user" that is about all the information I can provide, but thought you, i.e., the WINE HQ staff, should be aware of the problem.
Thank you for your time.
:)

Version 6.13 does not fix the problem and, again, reverting to 6.1 brings the dictionary back to life, so to speak. :)

The errors reported by running the program from the command line were,

I did a search and found at least one other report of the (presumably) same error. You should probably file a bug. Unfortunately that's all that can really be done for now unless either 1. you can build wine yourself to track down what change is causing it, or 2. your program is freely and legally available (and "it's old" doesn't count by itself).
