Additional Comments

Beginning with 1.17.x, Kindle for PC requires Windows 7 or later, so you need to set that version in winecfg before trying to install. This version is also affected by bugs 29045 and 35041. You need to have Times New Roman and Courier installed either systemwide or in the wineprefix, and bind the app to one core with taskset -c 0.
