I just installed Rootsmagic in Crossover, and it is running far better than any of my other efforts to get it to run on this computer have.
I am running Ubuntu 18.04 on an Intel board, 2nd generation i5 processor, older AMD video card.
Rootsmagic works fine in Windows 7 on this computer. It worked fine in Wine in Ubuntu 14.04 on my Core 2 Duo computer. It worked fine on my laptops running Ubuntu 14.04.
In Playonlinux it has a horrible lag where it temporarily freezes. It is especially hard to use the Name bar on the side to find who you're looking for.
I installed it in Windows 7 in VirtualBox and the problem got worse. Installing system as distinct from Chrome Flashplayer, and msxml6 helped but I still got the lag.
Nothing else has this lag, in Playonlinux or in Windows 7 in virtual box. Just Rootsmagic.
In Crossover I can atleast move from field to field and do commands everywhere except in the names sidebar, so I've got the program useful but buggy.
My old notes say that I originally had trouble with Rootsmagic on my old computer due to some kind of issue with the display drivers and inability to use advanced options, which I really need to use anything ELSE. I had to change from Unity to Gnome, and disable advanced display options and/OR configure Wine to let Windows manager control the windows, which I think let Windows Manager control the graphics.
With Crossover, how do I configure Wine to let Windows manager control the windows?
Is there another way to prevent Ubuntu video bugs from interfering with Rootsmagic function in Crossover?
