    TaxAct freezes on startup with latest WINE installed

    I am trying to use the downloaded free version to try out the program. Any suggestions would be very appreciated. I am using WINE 1.5.2 and running on a Sony VAIO:

    5.9 GiB
    Intel® Core™ i5-2450M CPU @ 2.50GHz × 4
    32-bit
    272.2 GB

    Also after reviewing my system to copy to this message I noticed that graphics says "unknown". Why would it say this? And could it be part of the problem? I have had some slowing and freezing (prior ro installing WINE) and have recently re-installed ubuntu.

    Thank you in advance for your help!

    Did you install the drivers for your graphics card?

    TaxAct has available an online version that you can also try for free. I've been using the WIN desktop version (paid) for quite a few years and love it. When I switched to Linux I discovered TaxAct will import last year's desktop version into their online version. It's a great program that I highly recommend!

    I can't figure out how to do that on the linux side. The graphics only say "unknown" and I don't know where else to look besides in the "all settings".

    When I try to do it "online" it still downloads the program to my desktop and then it freezes.

    From the WineHW webpage for TaxAct 2012, you have more work to do:
