'tricks' to improve results on Windows Template Library 9.1?

Post by treii28 » Wed Oct 31, 2018 10:19 am

I'm trying to run a small development app for a rather specific voice-recognition embedded device (Veear EasyVR) and it has a helper program to help you program the chip on the device. When run in windows, certain functions such as the program and test buttons will pop up a small widget box with the status such as "speak command now" for the test feature. Upon a successful test (in regular windows) it will then flash cyan color as the background under the voice-trigger it recognized so you can know it worked properly.

I was able to get the software itself installed and working under wine complete with connecting to the device over the com port. But whenever I click the 'program' or 'test', the little pop-over box that comes up is blank with transparency right around the outer border. (this doesn't bother me so much as I already know what the dialogues say). Then if doing a test, after a successful test, there is no colored flash under the voice command that was detected. This is something that I need to make sure the commands are triggering properly.

Before I give up on using it in wine, are there any tricks that might get the graphics working properly or any known issues with rendering some types of pop-overs and text background colors that I might find fixes for? I'd really prefer to do my development in linux if I could as my machine runs a lot faster than it does in bloated Windows 10 home.

I don't know if it's pertinent, but the graphics card is a Radeon 6750m. I have tried installing/running the program in both wine64 and with the arch set to wine32 with a separate ~/.wine32 prefix. Same results in both.

from developer:
EasyVR Commander is built with WTL (Windows Template Library) 9.1
