What works

Nothing works. It is not installable. 

To try to install: 

install winbind

set up a 32-bit wineprefix

winetricks wmi 

winecfg winver= (to set version back to Windows 7)

winetricks forcemono (so that NatSpeak 15 installs its own dotnet 4.5.2)

wineserver -k

Then start trying to install. 

Installation succeeds through the dotnet install, and then hangs up with this message: "Windows management instrumentation service is disabled or missing." (? I did install wmi)

A bug will be filed.
