What works

Everything works as with my previous test report, evaluating Adobe Acrobat 8 Pro with WINE 1.4. Difference this time was the WINE version used which made it possible to use the official installer. Contrary to with WINE 1.4, WINE 1.6 allows the installation of my Adobe Acrobat 8 Pro with the use of the official install disc. This means, no copy method needed as described for WINE 1.4. As for the functionality of Acrobat itself: identical as described before when tested under WINE 1.4. Remarkable however, graphics are quicker/ normal, where under WINE 1.4 they were not.

What does not

As with my previous test under different WINE version.


What was not tested

As before.
