First of all, I accidentally posted the following under the Mercury software discussion. If an admin see that, please delete it.
Hello: I have been a staunch user of Pegasus for so long I cannot remember my first use of it. I regard Pegasus as the very best e-mail client I have ever used. Also, many of the members of my family use it.
I heartily thank David Harris for building and supporting such a magnificent piece of software.
Now, my question to the group is how do I get Pegasus to run successfully under WINE in a FreeBSD environment?
But, for now, forget the FreeBSD part. If I can get it to run under WINE, I believe it will run under any Unix-like system.
I know that one must work-around IErenderer, and at this point I am unsure how to do that. I DO know that others have been successful at this, but I have been unable to learn how they did it.
I believe I have successfully installed WINE on my system, although I still need some tutoring on how to use it.
In any case, although everything associated with Pegasus and WINE "appears" to be correct, when I attempt to start Pegasus, the system "messes around" for several seconds (proved by a clock icon appearing), but then quietly just quits with nothing showing on the desktop.
What I am trying to do is to build a Unix-like system to replace all our Windoze installations. So far, I have accomplished some very good things, and it is looking like I will eventually have what I need. But this issue with Pegasus has been a BIG problem for me.
