What works

The initial setup program setup.exe starts up and you can get to the part where you can choose the components you wish to install.

What does not

Actually installing the program does not work. It cannot create the necessary directories. I believe it is able to create c:\Corel but nothing inside of that.


What was not tested

As the others have wrote, I was not able to test anything because I could not complete the install.

Additional Comments

It is a shame that this baby does not work. I use OpenOffice 2.3, but if I could get any version of Corel's WordPerfect 8* working, I would switch to it in a heartbeat.
