The drivers and test program for the drivers are free to use.Â http://www.ced.co.uk/files/winsupp.exe
There is other more sophisticated software (Spike2, Signal5, Signal6) as well as other third party tools, that are available for demo use.Â
The driver can be installed, the test program try1432.exe started just fine on wine.
What does not
The test program try1432.exe has a number of diagnostic tests; running them fails at the first step when trying to connect to the USB-connected CED 1401 hardware device with the following error message.
"PassÂ Â Â Â 0 - Failure opening 1401 - device driver not installed or not loaded (code -581) at ... "
What was not tested
I've also recompiled wine with USB support  according to the instructions . The instructions in  are laborious, but I think, I've managed to complete them all.  http://wiki.winehq.org/USB  http://wiki.winehq.org/Wine64 (Building a shared WoW64 setup) Without being able to use the USB connected device, the application is pretty much useless.
