What works

Installer starts. 

I used a 32-bit wineprefix to test, and pre-installed dotnet452. That combination should have given it the best chance of succeeding.  

But there are powershell elements missing (see bug 45587), and the program will not go past them. 

What does not

Doesn't install. 

Powershell elements missing. 


What was not tested


Hardware tested


  • GPU: Intel
  • Driver: open source

Additional Comments

Bug 45587 notes that powershell is needed to install applications other than NaturallySpeaking 15.
