Using only a few test documents, so no extensive tests ! Forms/comments show some pronounced lag when trying to enter data.
What does not
Sandboxing, i.e. "protected mode", does not work but can be disabled on start-up.
What was not tested
Everything not mentioned under "What Works".
The following winetricks were installed to an otherwise pristine new WINEPREFIX location: winetricks mspatcha winetricks wsh57 winetricks atmlib winetricks riched20 The last two are from some bug report in the wine bug database, mspatcha has been mentioned in another AppDB entry. I did not experiment to find out which of these are really essential, though without atmlib trying to fill in forms crashes the Adobe Reader. Also, riched20 appears to mitigate problems with reading documents containing comments, i.e. crash due to "fixme:richedit:ITextSelection_fnGetFont not implemented". Tested Adobe Reader: AdbeRdr11008_en_US.exe for WinXP SP3.
