I am new to winehq. I want to use it to run a program called Bestcase but it is not working. Do I just have to wait for something to happen to fix it or for someone to care enough about Bestcase to change wine so that it runs Bestcase? Is there something that I can do to possibly make it work? What are the steps required to get this program working under wine? I don't know what the process is? I am not a programmer. Below is a description of the problem. The program installs and looks like it works somewhat until you start to enter information. As described in the bug report below and appdb reports, the mouse works on some buttons and tabs, but not what other things fields and radio buttons. You can't click on stuff to give it focus or select it. Note -- the last appdb report says that wine 1.3.31 works with MacOS 10.7 (Lion), and says that the former problem is fixed. However, I could not get it to work with a recent install of gentoo linux and on MacOS 10.5.8 (Leopard). I had the same problem on my 2007 Mac laptop and 2011 Toshiba laptop. The toshiba has gentoo linux. My problem is the same the first AppDB report linked below on both machines. See links below Thanks for any suggestions.

That's already an impressive achievement for a non-programmer, so I can't guess how much you already know about wine. Do you know about winecfg? If not, that's the place to begin. My guess is that Bestcase uses one or more Windows dll files that have not yet been ported (completely) to wine, and winecfg will let you choose between the wine version and the Windows version of those particular dll files.
