One has the register using a valid serial number of the MultiClamp 700A Hardware.
The driver is only supported for WinXP 32 bit.
The MC700A software can be installed and started. Demo works fine. In order to communicate with the MultiClamp 700A Hardware, the following steps were provided. Connect the Hardware with the serial interface. I've been using a Serial2USB converter, because the Laptop did not have a serial interface. The device was identified as /dev/ttyUSB0. Configure the device in wine with this command ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/com1 set permissions sudo chmod a+rw /dev/ttyUSB0 Afterwards, scaning for the Devicenumber in "device selection"-> "MultiClamp Hardware" -> Scan provided successfully a device number. Switching between Voltage-Clamp and Current Clamp in the software interface changed the lights on the hardware accordingly. This proofs a successful communication between the MC700A and the MultiClamp 700A.
What does not
What was not tested
There MC700A has a number of options. Only the few described above have been tested. However, the most critical part - communicating with the hardware - is working. Therefore, it is reasonable to assume that everything else is working, too.
Works on 1.4.1 as well as on 1.7.14.

1) Connect the Hardware with the serial interface. I've been using a Serial2USB converter, because the Laptop did not have a serial interface. The device was identified as /dev/ttyUSB0.
2) Configure the device in wine with this command
ln -s /dev/ttyUSB0 ~/.wine/dosdevices/com1
3) Set permissions
sudo chgrp dialout /dev/ttyUSB0
sudo chmod a+rw /dev/ttyUSB0
the installer runs only correctly when winecfg is set to WinXP or Windows2003
