Additional Comments

Version 11.5 (unlike version 11.0) requires a functioning DotNet 3.5 (MS Net) plus Service Pack 1 to run. I tried installing three ways. I tried the standard installation. I tried starting to install the program and then installing NatSpeak's version of dot net (which includes the SP, apparently). I tried installing dotnet35 with winetricks, then I tried to install SP1 from the Microsoft web site. Anyway, nothing worked. It may be that when 3.5 and SP1 work, then this application will work also.
