What works

Everything: menus, search, dictionaries, media and so on.

What does not

Installation does not work, the application's DVD must be unpacked/installed in Windows and then copied over to a Linux partition. I recommend installing the DVD in Windows, then making a .zip file (or similar) to make a copy you can always unpack in Linux in case of system reinstall. Once you work around the installation issue, the software works perfectly.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Additional Comments

Has graphical glitches if Wine set up to compatibility with Windows XP, but all works fine when compatibility set to Windows 7.
