What does not
Does not install when ~/.wine is an NFS mount. Trying to run:
starts the installation dialogue but when the button to install is pressed the console issues the error:
err:exec:SHELL_ExecuteW cannot set directory L"Z:\\fm\\"
Trying to install by:
starts the installdialogue sequence. On a system with ~/.wine as an NFS mount, when it comes to do the disk space check, you get the message:
The available space on System disk drive (c:) is not enough for this installation.
This installation requires 45MBytes of free space on this drive.
On a system (same OS and Wine version) where ~/.wine is on a locally attached disc, installation proceeds more correctly.
Adobe Acrobat Installer will not install unless Internet Explorer 5.01 or later is installed :-(
Anyway, I tried running FrameMaker and it worked! It had huge problems with fonts but this may well be because I haven't installed any in Wine -- does Wine not use the Linux fonts? More investigation needed.
What was not tested
Problems with NFS mounted filestores.
