Additional Comments

Run winetricks dotnet20 wsh56 before installing. After installing, open winecfg and add a native override for gdiplus in the libraries tab before using the program. On Windows, this version requires the .NET Framework 1.1 and refuses to use .NET 2.0, but the reverse is true in Wine. The program will crash if .NET 1.1 is installed.
