Installation, viewing (DOC, RTF, TXT), printing (cups-pdf), various view modes.
What does not
The installer, setup.exe, doesn't exit due to what appears to be a deadlock between two threads:
…err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection … "loader.c: loader_section" wait timed out in thread #, blocked by #, retrying (60 sec)
…err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection … "syslevel.c: Win16Mutex" wait timed out in thread #, blocked by #, retrying (60 sec)
This repeats endlessly. Terminating "winevdm.exe …\Temp\MSE000\setup.exe" doesn't appear to negatively affect the installation.
What was not tested
Not all display options tested.
App version 220.127.116.1120
Encountered only a single crash from loading a specific RTF file but the same occurs in WinXP.

Installation only seems to hang!
During install the setup seems to hang when "searching for installed components"
Just get yourself a coffee and let it alone. Setup will continue.
