Additional Comments

Steps to make it work at least somehow: Apply Bug14879 and Bug18070 patches to the Wine source. To install apply winetricks ie6. To install on Atom-based netbook (1024x600): - before installation set use of Wine Virtual Desktop with appropriate display resolution (1024x768) in winecfg; - after installation, Wine Virtual Desktop is unnecessary. There are many glitches with interface. I've posted the Bug32866 with a comment and screenshots. Better performs with winetricks gdiplus.
