Additional Comments

winecfg set to Win95 Installed from Office95 as "Typical installation". Office installer (not Word95) complained about "ODBC's SQLRemoveDriver failed for driver Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)", but it was easily solved by: "winetricks mdac25" I also tried "winetricks vb3run" (word looked for VBRUN300.DLL), but it did not help with bug 21879.
