Minitab

15.1 Retail and trial version of Minitab. It works good but the installation is troublesome.

How to install:

  • Download DCOM98, set windows version in wine configuration to "Windows 98", then run DCOM98.exe
  • Download Minitab 14 japanese (trial) and install it. (Don't worry if you can't understand anything: when the License window appears click on " :::::::::(A) ", it probably means "accept")
  • Set windows version to "Windows XP"
  • Download Minitab 15.1 and install it.
  • Reboot linux
  • Run Minitab 14 and then close it
  • Now you can finally run Minitab 15
If you don't follow this procedure you won't be able to use graphs and control charts due to runtime errors (actually I don't know why).

Selected Test Results

What works

  • The program starts without problems
  • Control charts and graphs are perfect
  • Statistical tests work well.
  • 3D plots and graphs work but if you want to use them you should click on tools/options/graphics/other graphic options.

    Then click at the left of "use GDI for 3D graphs": check boxes are not shown but if you click on the right position the option will be activated.

What does not

  • When you minimize a window it's difficult to open it again because the icons on the bottom left are overlaid. To solve this minor problem use the "window" menu of Minitab
  • Minitab "options" (in the "tools" menu) are difficult to set because the check boxes are not shown (but if you click on the right position the option will be activated anyway). However Minitab options are rarely used so this is not a problem.
  • Sometimes there are runtime errors which do not affect the program execution

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO
Sometimes 3D graphs' windows will not close or minimize. If you want to minimize them go to window/minimize all; then you can restore only the worksheet and session window. If you want to forcibily close a 3D graph go to window/clos all graphs. This however will close every graph in Minitab.
