I tried installing it under the newest version of WineX  - Cedega 4.2.
It went badly. All sorts of error messages while installing, finishing
with a message that it couldn't be installed and RichEdit out of space

I tired running it. An initial window came up and I was then greeted
with lots of snaps and crackles, but no real application. I had to
Ctrl-C it and then kill off wineserver instances still running.

Not successful here.
