Installation (tested with wine 0.9.7, clean install, compiled from source):
A thousand thanks to Hans Leidekker for this installation procedure:
(If you try a Win98 install, MDAC (Microsoft Data Access Components) get's shown as an installation option but won't install. Get MDAC_TYP.EXE from Microsoft (google for the 2.50 version))
$ rm -rf ~/.wine
$ wine notepad (to create a new prefix)
$ cat >> ~/.wine/system.reg (fake an IE install)
^D (press CTRL-D here)
$ WINEDLLOVERRIDES=advpack=n wine MDAC_TYP.EXE (will fail the first time)
$ WINEDLLOVERRIDES=advpack=n wine MDAC_TYP.EXE (succeeds the second time)
$ wine EN034_EasyTax2005AGKL_1.exe
$ wine .wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/EasyTax/2005/EasyTax2005_AG.exe
What does not
Linking to help topics doesn't work. Tip: To see more topics, move with the '<<' and '>>' around and then use the 'History'-Button.
What was not tested
Not yet fully tested (I'm not so fast in filling out my tax forms ;) ). Printing not tested (PDF-export works fine).

Back up your .wine directory if you've installed anything under wine before. The installation procedure will remove it.
