Installer, after dependencies are satisfied.
This program brings new meaning to the term "full-featured". With the exception of the items listed in "Does not work" and "not tested", everything works.
Help File- standard behavior for a Windows Help file- clickable contents tree, etc.
Note: The current version (20120308) of Winetricks has outdated links for the files Stickies needs. You can download a modified version of the script in the Notes section below, which will look at the wayback machine's version of the relevant pages, and as of 8/14/12, install the packages correctly using the instructions here. If you have a later version, I don't recommend replacing it with this one, but if the links haven't been fixed in the official version, you can download this one and run it from anywhere. I make no warranty in such a situation that it won't break something else, as I have no way of knowing what changes will take place in later versions of Winetricks.
In order to install the packages using the GUI in Winetricks, the command path is "Select the default wineprefix > Install a Windows DLL or component". The following packages are needed:
"mfc42", titled "Visual C++ 6 sp4 mfc42 library; part of vcrun6"
"jet40", titled "MS Jet 4.0 Service Pack 8"
"riched20", titled "MS RichEdit Control version 2.0 (riched20.dll, riched32.dll)"
"riched30", titled "MS RichEdit Control version3.0 (riched20.dll, msls31.dll)"
The error after installing Jet indicating that dao360.dll is not found does not appear to affect the function of Stickies, but it does prevent the checkbox in the Winetricks package listing from staying checked to indicate that the package is installed. This can be remedied by copying the folder "dao" from "c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft shared\" to "c:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\" or correcting the name "Microsoft shared" to "Microsoft Shared", depending on the structure of your Wine c: drive.
Run the Stickies install program using Wine Windows Program Loader.
What does not
What was not tested
Still in the process of testing- will update as I go through all the options. I am in discussion with the developer, who is willing to tweak the program to work well in Wine- the rating is likely to improve considerably as bugs are addressed.

All of Stickies' dependencies have outdated links in Winetricks version 20120308. I have found links that work as of August 14, 2012 and added them to Winetricks, which allows it to install them correctly. No other changes were made. You can download my slightly-modified version at this google docs link:
