What works

Program runs and allow eBooks to be read, including books that have DRM encryption applied.

What does not

Installer doesn't work. Claims that you must have at least Windows 2000 in order to install.

After installing the program in Windows and copying the Mobipocket.com folder over to Wine's Program Files folder, you can manually run reader.exe and the program will run.

Also, there is a bit of display errors, like arrows across the top bar. And the eBook preview cover doesn't work, though you can still double click the book to read it. Pictures embedded in books work fine.

The button to import eBooks does nothing. You must manually copy eBooks into your library before you run reader.exe. The library folder, 'My eBooks' is automatically created in your home directory.

Workarounds

What was not tested

Ability to send eBooks to PDA. Along with other functions other than reading a book. Further testing needed.

Additional Comments

Be sure to manually copy eBooks to the 'My eBook' folder that the reader automatically creates in your home directory. Otherwise you will not have any books in your library. Note: You must run reader.exe once before the folder is created.
