Installs OK All drawing functions work OK. File Save OK. Insert file (*.bmp,*.wmf files) function does not work. Occasional problems using the "Options->Program Setup_>General menu" for setting default file locations etc. Changing these settings is usually successful if attempted immediately following startup of the program. Previous problems withe dimensioning which required the use of native windows mcvcrt.dll have been corrected with wine version 0.9.54. See how-to's below regarding object reference points when moving objects and regarding importing QCad files. There are two upgrades available from http://www.softdevspb.com/v2/ts_downloads.html neither of these has been tested.
What does not
Edit->Insert of files, pictures or objects & Help Files...No help files are included with Turbocad LE.
What was not tested
Tools->Database and Tools->Run Scripts functions & Upgrades from IMSI technical support
Would rate gold except for the occasional problems with the Setup->General Menus functions.

(this is a TurboCad how to, not a wine issue) For users familiar with later versions of TurboCad: "Edit Reference Point" command is not available using rt-click drop down menu but IS avaiable using the key command "D".
TCLE is no longer available from freecad.com, however it is now available from TurboCadables http://turbocadables.com/download.php#turboCADLE
