The test results you have selected are very old and may not represent the current state of Wine.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
install, organizer, editor
What does not
expect bugs along the way...
What was not tested
haven't tried using all options and features.
before install use winetricks to:
Install IE5 or above (PSE8 needs it) and flash (not sure if it needs it but it is an Adobe product...).
Install vcrun2003, vcrun2005, vcrun2008, and vcrun2010 (PSE8 needs c++ librarys and will error without these).
then install PSE8, It may seem that the install is hanging but just wait (up to 1hr) and it will proceed without errors.
I accidentally installed it on the windows version of win 2000 but I changed it to win 7 and it works great.
using 'wineboot -k' and 'wineboot -r' commands is probably needed to get PSE8 to open and run the editor without errors (I had to do this a couple times for some reasons). Switching from the trial version and entering a serial seemed to help so I didn't have to wineboot each time I wanted to open PSE8.

Element 8 install in Ubuntu 10.4
by Peter Richardson on Wednesday October 27th 2010, 11:19
Installed OK on Ubuntu 10.4 and seems to be running ok. Running WINE 1.2
Only thing was it seems to hang on the first install screen, but it you leave it (in my case about 1 hour) it eventually lets you click next and then installs fine. Note this is an install from a licensed disk with a valid licence key.
Photoshop Elements 8 installation

For what it's worth I got the same results when installing PSE 8. That is, the process stops once you get to the screen where you are supposed to enter your country then license key. You can enter the key, but cannot enter country. The install will not let you continue without entering a country.
