The application will not even begin the install in wine 0.9.57; the installer exits and wine crashes. However, I did get the installer to work in 0.9.33.
What does not
After installing it with wine 0.9.33 I was unable to add the needed system DSN via ODBC so I was unable to actually try the program. I installed MDAC 2.8 and set it to native using winetricks, then I attempted to add the DSN. I'm able to select my server from the list of SQL servers but when I try to change from the default database for the DSN to the specific database where the application resides, the list of databases does not appear.
What was not tested
The actual application.
I'm currently in the process of doing a regression test for the install of the application.

To install HEAT and be able to run Call Logging you need to be running wine version 0.9.58, all previous versions crash when the call logging application GUI launches. If you use a version older then 0.9.59, then you need to install dcom98 via winetricks.
Start with a fresh .wine directory, and do the following...
- wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
- chmod +x winetricks
- ./winetricks (Choose to install mdac27, and native_mdac)
- Run winecfg and set the windows version to windows 98.
- Run the HEAT install and then set your data source.
- HEAT Call Logging should launch and run fine as long as you keep the windows version on 98.
Known issues :
- The First Level Support module will not open.
- The infocenter behavior is glitchy and duplicates information.
- There are minor graphical issues with the layout of the fields in work orders.
