a) I have some drawings done in DeltaCAD's .dc format that I need to retrieve
b) I don't have to buy it, there's a demo version
c) I already have LibreCAD installed

The place to start is at winehq for these reports. https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManag...ation&iId=2238

As you can see it is silver so you can expect that it will install but have missing features.

Moving up to CrossOver Office product you may find some improvements as well as using latest wine. YMMV.

It may be possible to run in ReactOS.

@jefro: Thanks for this. I have already downloaded Crossover for Linux. It doesn't have Deltacad in its approved arsenal yet but I put in a request and they're processing it. I don't like going this route because after the 14 day trial period, Crossover charges but there is another Win app (Band-in-a-Box) that I do want to use on an ongoing basis so I guess I might just have to hold my nose and do it.

Never hurts to run it on some virtual linux where you can install all sorts of stuff to try. I'd try wine and winetricks for a test also but usually crossover is one of the better working ways.
