@Emuandco - then that might be a "bug in the bug"? :)

AFIAK, the goal here, is to run the ReactOS Shell/Winstation/.... on "top" of Wine (running on Linux, MacOS, ...). It is not about running the ReactOS nt kernel on Wine.

Interesting thread. Is this possible now, 10 years later? I'm gonna try it out myself. :)

Just tried it out. Using ReactOS 0.4.13 and wine-stable 5.0.2.

Running "wine desktop.exe" (where desktop.exe is the ReactOS explorer.exe renamed to avoid filename conflict with Wine) resulted in a crash, even with notifyhook.dll copied over from ReactOS and made native as suggested in the original post. That's how different they are now.

However, the little utilities:

calc.exe, clipbrd.exe, cmd.exe, mspaint.exe, notepad.exe, regedit.exe, wordpad.exe

all run great under Wine. In fact, they are even better and felt more complete than the versions in Wine.

ReactOS Notepad feels more comfortable to use and seems closer to Windows Notepad than Wine Notepad. Calculator looks and feels like a perfect clone of WinXP Calculator, Paint tried to modernize the XP Paint, but I like the XP Paint better (oh and please make the "old" palette the default).

Overall, ReactOS seemed to have made greater progress in those little utilities than Wine did. Great work!

ReactOS' version of Paint is modeled after Vista's version, i.e. the most recent iteration of the traditional Paint design.
The option to use the "old" palette is a deviation that I snuck in because Vista's Paint had already introduced the palette used in Windows 7.
The ability to resize the canvas on the top and left edge, too, is not faithful to the original, either, but unobtrusive.

(And this is officially my first post on this forum after a full decade! ... On the perfect thread for such a post.)
