What works

The MED works, providing you don't install the toolbar software and do install the patch from Macmillan. You need to open a prompt and type "wine autorun.exe" - the cd won't auto run irself and you can't click the exe's like with some windows install cds. Then, towards the end of the install (it takes a few minutes and appears to have stopped a few times!) choose "No" at the prompt for installing Quick find, and "No" for running the app straight away.


Then visit the url provided above, download the patch, install it (again, "wine patch.exe") and *then* it'll work.

What does not

- relying on autorun direct from cd

- the file browser loading using wine by default

- the software without installing the patch

- the software with quick find installed

(generates some nice page faults)


What was not tested

Additional Comments

You don't have to change anything in winecfg, but you really do need to download the patch. {ed:changed to Gold)
