What works

Installation mostly.

What does not

Most everything else.

The 16-bit Internet Connection Wizard (ICWMAN16.EXE) page faults.  Installer also page faults probably due to the same near end of installation when configuring the Internet connection.  This prevents setup from completing installation and post-reboot component configuration.

Internet Explorer (iexplore.exe) fails due to an unimplemented function:

wine: Call from 0x7b43eef2 to unimplemented function ole2.dll16.CREATEBINDCTX, aborting

Native DLL doesn't fix it.

Outlook Express 5 (msimn.exe) loads but reports an error "The MSHTML control failed to create." and fails to show anything in the main message widow.

Address Book (wabmain.exe) loads but doesn't show any entries.  Creating a new contact seems to work but there's no way to verify if it was actually added to the book.


What was not tested

Many things.
