Only one of those errors this time and the application nearly runs. Don't seem to be able to save a modified picture but that isn't entirely clear facility in the app..
Installation is a bit strange. I clicked on welcome on the CD that came with the camera. Answered the questions and clicked install. An install pane pops up showing progress dots. These advance for a while and then stop but can be updated by hovering the mouse on and off the pane. Left it like this for 10mins and then moved the pane out of the way and clicked install again. License agreement popped up etc. When this had all completed I had to kill the wineserver to get rid of the window.
Started ViewNX2 from the icon that had appeared on my desktop. Had a wine error message but it loaded and showed all of the shots in the photo album I accessed last install. Clicked on one and then on edit and it went to the editor.
The editors main view and other parts don't update correctly. The main view can be refreshed by toggling an info button which brings up camera settings and the toggling that off again. Same sort of thing with the adjustment pane. Parts of this can be expanded and collapsed and do not update when the scroll bar is used. The bits that were out of the view corrupt.
The adjustments are via sliders with number boxes at the end. Some are only available when a raw file has been loaded. The number box updated correctly on one of those and the changes were shown when the info button was toggled. The rest of the sliders could be moved around but the numbers didn't update. They could be updated by clicking in the number box.
The thumbnail view of the image updated then, main view didn't until the info button was toggled.
When I clicked on welcome to install and wine popped up I requested an HDMI sized window. When I started the app it took up all of the screen - 27in high def, I'd guess Q4Wine asked for screen size but it doesn't show the app. I was offered other options such as virtual desktop emulation but can't see any way of changing that sort of thing now. Have tried setting for XP but a save to nowhere didn't complete so set it back to 7.
Any thoughts? Having seen how quickly it can fix a number of problems in raw files I can see why people use it. I haven't run windows at all for at least 15 years. It seems to me that one problem with this sort of thing is knowing which DLL's are causing grief. The app seems to use the MS C distributable.
