Installs fine, apps launch OK, some are useable.
What does not
Writer (and maybe others as well) cannot create new files. That is: I can open an existing rtf/doc etc file, edit it and save back the changes, but if I try to save a file I am making from scratch, it crashes. Same with the spreadsheet app.
What was not tested
Other apps in the suite not tested. Only Writer and the spreadsheet app.

Ability requires some basic Microsoft DLLs - MFC, Visual C++ runtime, DAO/JET. Before Ability can be installed, these DLLs must be installed. They can be downloaded here:
And to install:
wine -i msiexec MFCSetup.MSI
Also, note that Database runs best with msvcrt.dll set to Native.
