So far, we have it working under Parallels, which has two modes of interests: 'Single application' and 'Coherence'.

'Single Application' is fairly self explanatory - Parallels exposes exactly one app to the user.

'Coherence' is what VMware calls 'Unity' - you can access your Windows virtual machine's start menu and all its apps, but without starting a virtual machine 'Window'. This shot is in that mode:

Actually, I'd expect printing to be something that WINE handles o.k. I imagine a lot of people want to print.

Crystal might prove to be an issue though, also I am pretty sure Jiwa expects to write the rpt file out to temp to run it which could also prove an issue.

Under Parallels, it's not an issue - it's a Windows 10 virtual machine.

Under WINE, we won't know for sure until we try, which I'm still angling for - we're going to copy the now installed JIWA folder to the Macbook and see how far we get :)
