Wine: window resizing


Hi,

I've installed the latest version of wine (20040813) on Fedora Core 2. I can run my windows exe fine under it, but when the first window spawns a new window, the first window is minimized and reduced to 1cm square. This minimized window is not resizable, and so is unusable.

Is there something in the wine config that can stop this happening?


Thanks

If you re-maximize the window does the small 1cm square one disappear?

The window that is reduced to 1cm sq never (either before or after the shrinking) has the window decoration "Maximize". (I'm using KDE).

The first window (the one that spawns a new window, and gets shrunk) under MS Windows is minimized but is not shrunk, and so can continue to create child windows when asked to.

Yeah I mean if you maximize/restore it again using your window list utility.

Window list utility?

Right clicking on it doesn't give a maximize/resize option.

OK, you found a (known) bug in Wine. You may wish to report it to wine-devel, wine-users or Bugzilla. Or you can just wait for a fix (no guarantees on timescales I'm afraid).

Oh I forgot to mention, if you set Wine to use Desktop mode it may work (better).

In the config file:

WINE REGISTRY Version 2

[x11drv]
"Desktop"="800x600"
