When I installed it, Wine had created a programs files. I cannot uninstall the program now to reinstall it (Missed some steps in installing wine. Installed in the middle of the process,) and I cannot find the location to remove the program contents. When I start up the program, it gives me an error and tells me to look at the Wine Application Database. All that is, is supported programs. Where did I go wrong in installing Wine?

check your prefix path, probably defaults to ~/.wine

Shading/Redraw Changes?

Hi Conrad, no worries!

~ $ wine --version
wine-2.11 (Staging)

Tried with 7 and xp mode and it still does the shading thing

Just as a coverall, I also created new prefix and that fixed it, no more shading while on focus. Weird issue, obviously something in the newer versions which was triggering it!

Thank you for the response and hints!

Shading/Redraw Changes?

As of 6701/6702,  under Wine only, RU Viewer is  dimming when the window is focused, and undims when the window is not focused.

Just checking to see if there was any redraw or shading features added in these latest versions.

Let me know if you need screen shots/screen recordings

Touch/Tablet Issues

Hi Conrad,

Just wanted to let you know that the Legacy Capture works perfectly!

One thing however, is every time the tablet is restarted, they get the 'remote utilities' notification which we cannot click on.

Is there a registry key to disable that? (Asking as I am being too lazy to check)

I installed RU onto a Think Tablet and when I remote'd in, it exhibited very odd behavior, so I'd like to pass this on..

How tablet looks:

How RU looks:

Install notification does not register touch since its virtualized, such as when you remote in:

Service Recovery

Sorry I was being a bit vague

On a system, I couldn't connect because the service kept crashing, therefore I had to manually start the service on the console to connect remotely again.

I'll just reset it to restart on a case by case basis..

Thank you for the info!

Noticed that I had a computer that would just not reconnect, and found that the service recovery settings were set to this:

This behavior is with customized and stock hosts.

Is this intended behavior?

Is it possible to update the recovery to restart service for all three categories?


HOST - popup details

Ahh I see, Thanks Benny and Conrad.

Was hoping it would be auto populated and display the actual current computer name when using Internet ID type..

No big deal, would just  be a little easier when managing a lot of computers..

That actually works out perfect..

One thing though, I posted a reply to another thread, is the hostname field currently bugged?

Perfect.. one quirk I just noticed, seems that all my computers added are missing hostname field.

Thank you for the quick response
