What works

Without service pack setup.exe runs from start to finish.
With service pack 1 setup.exe crashes before GUI loads.

Both .msi files run from start to finish.

What does not

The install screen with the progress bar flashes by quickly. I don't think that it is actually installing the program. I could not find the program in .wine.


What was not tested

Running the program after the install.

Additional Comments

I know about Qemu and VMWare. I'll probably end up using Qemu. However, this is the program my work uses, so it would be nice if it worked. I know it might be a lot of work, but if it worked, quite a few people would use it. I am going to put my votes for it because if you can get it working, I will use it very often.

HowTo / Notes

Program requires MSXML6 to start. ( mfc42.dll )
Due to Wine's design, this program cannot work because it requires a low-level kernel Windows driver (similar to VirtualBox's r0 (ring 0) driver) to run. 
Program Warns about this.
