1.5.7 Trial under Crossover Office works but no Internet

I just downloaded and installed the 30 day trial. Running on Ubuntu 13.04 under Crossover Office.
Internet Explorer runs fine under Crossover with Internet connection. Scrivener (1.5.7) works fine under Crossover also, but if I access the help->update, it reports that there is no Internet connection.

Yeah, known issue. I get the same thing with Windows scrivener under WINE. It used to work before they changed it a few patches ago.

You can download updates manually and install them, so it shouldn’t be an issue in actually using the program. Running under VM software isn’t technically supported, but the connection problem might be resolved when we’re able to add support for proxy settings.
