What works

The installer (with some workarounds) and the Internet Options control panel applet.

What does not

The browser - I got it to run using the procedure from winetricks (intended for the 32-bit IE7) with a few modifications to account for both the 64-bit and 32-bit side of WoW64, but it's totally unusable. Most toolbars are missing, the address/search bars are visible but nonfunctional, and no web pages can be loaded.

The installer (or rather, an installer for one of IE7's required updates) will usually crash unless a catalog file is put into place manually first (see bug 16013) and installation will not complete unless two instances of cmd.exe are manually killed near the end (bug 28213). The uninstaller just crashes on startup.

It will only install after changing the reported Windows version to Windows 2003.
