The installer works. Photoshop 3 itself does not.
What does not
During installation, a message that said "Unable to start DDE communicataion with Program Manager" appeared several times. I clicked the button that said "Ignore".
When run with WINE set as "Windows 95", "Windows NT 3.5", "Windows NT 4.0", or "Windows XP". a window pops up with the message: "There is not enough memory (RAM) to launch Photoshop"
When I tried running with WINE set as "Windows 3.1", I got error messages in the console that seemed to concern 16 bits.
I retried "Windows 3.1" after trying other settings. I got several popups, and it seemed as if Photoshop 3 would run, but it crashed with an unhandled exception.
What was not tested
Photoshop 3 did not work.
Photoshop 3 may not run on modern PCs with large amounts of RAM (typically >2048MB).
This is a Photoshop bug, not a Wine bug. The same behaviour is apparent in Windows.
PS3 reports an "out of memory" message on computers with large amounts of RAM. This is not a Wine bug, the same occurs under Windows.
However, you can hack Wine to allow PS3 to run. The precise hack you want to use will vary depending on your system configuration, but the following patch is an example:
diff --git a/dlls/kernel32/heap.c b/dlls/kernel32/heap.c

Note: This patch affects memory allocation for ALL Wine applications. Make sure you understand what you are doing.
Do NOT submit test results for hacked versions of Wine.
As this is not a bug, it will never be fixed. Unless a third-party tool can be used to circumvent the issue, no further test results are needed and will probably be rejected.
