The Editor fails on first opening attempt and a Wine error message stating the program has failed appears. Elements 8 starts after second attempt. The Welcome screen closes (it shouldn't) and you have to wait for up to a minute for the Editor to start.
I have tried Grants Tools plug-in and that works fine.
What does not
Photomerge functions (panorama, exposure etc.), cause Elements to crash.
If you minimise the Editor and restore it again, the right hand side of the Editor is missing. This can be restored by right clicking on the Elements Button in the Panel and selecting Maximise.
The Organizer does not work properly, files become disconnected.
What was not tested
all editing features have been tested
The latest version of Wine has addressed the installation problems.
