What works

The basic program: navigation, entering information, syncing with FamilySearch, and printing were tested and working well.

What does not

The collaboration feature does not work. Gives errors when installing. I got it to go through one install clean, but then gave error and crashed AQ when attempting to use the feature after rebooting the program.


What was not tested

I haven't yet tried to create a detailed source list, import a large, complicated genealogy, create a web page, or print each possible report.

Additional Comments

While it will run without installing MS Core Fonts, it is recommended to install them as this significantly improves the readability of the text on screen. Running in a "virtual desktop" may require some tinkering. If AQ is larger than the "virtual desktop", large portions of the screen will be black. I removed the run in a virtual desktop setting, and it ran fine.
