Installs OK, with Wine 1.1.14 See my comments for using with Wine 1.0.0
What does not
Could not create a user. After inputing some general user info, the program brought up a small window saying the process was not permitted, and dumped me back to the window that creates a new user or logs on an existing user. So basically Futuretax is unusable with Wine 1.1.14 See my comments for using with Wine 1.0.0
What was not tested
Couldn't get the program to bring up the Tax Forms , to test anything.
Actually FutureTax works fine using Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron) and Wine 1.0.0. This version of Wine is the default version available through the Synaptic package manager in Ubuntu 8.04 FutureTax installed OK, I was able to create a user and bring up the Tax Forms and input the data. I have not yet tried to print out the Tax Forms or do a Net File.
