wine-stable (2.0.4) - some programs have broken fullscreen

Post by elcore » 14. Jan 2018, 07:41

What happened is that codeweavers implemented taskbar with systray and start menu, where previously there was none.
It sometimes works fine, but a number of programs that run 'fullscreen in virtual desktop' have the taskbar render on top of them.
Arguably it's the program fault and not wine, but still a bug and regression because fullscreen inside a desktop container worked fine before.

Anyway, I had to patch the taskbar out by removing these from explorer/


And I had to delete any functions that depended on it from desktop.c
Removing the taskbar fixed it on my end, maybe it helps someone with the same problem.
