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).

HowTo / Notes

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.
