Yes, extract the files, but not yet until I have tried to use Legacy in Linux Mint which is compatable to Ubuntu using Wine. By the way Swebby, when was that test carried out (legacy/Wine on Ubuntu?)

It was tried out on Legacy 7.0 a while back (Aug 2009), it really could do with another test on Legacy 7.4 and updated WINE.

     Success(Of a sort) 1st details: My computer Acer Aspire1362, 5 years old 1.6GB processor 256MB RAM upgraded to 768 (256+512)XP Pro SP3 OS Have Virtual Box installed, and running Linux Mint in Virtual Box, have run Linux on dual boot previously, but reverted to Virtual Box as couldn't persuade the internet to work. Linux Mint which is stated to be fully compatible with Ubuntu runs slowly, and often pauses due to shortage of memory (anyone surprised?). I have Wine Doors installed and Wine 1.1.39, but had problems with Wine hence tried Doors.                                                    Downloaded Legacy 7.4 Free Version no problems, and then installed it which took over 1 hour. It runs, but glacially slowly, which may be due to problems between it and Wine, or and I think slightly more likely, due to the handicaps that I have placed unpon it outlined above.
If you are running a Ubuntu based system I believe that Legacy 7.4 would work with Wine, and/or Doors. Shall be interested to hear what others find.

Ok.

Ubuntu 9.10 WINE 1.1.19

Legacy 7.4 Standard Edition installs very quickly and you can run through the setup questions albeit with some visual distortion on writing. However, as soon as you set your filename it gives you the following error 'Run-time error 445 Object doesn't support this action'. Tried it a couple of times and it quit at the same point.

I doubt the deluxe edition will be any different.

Realised my WINE was out of date as I hadn't changed repository since 9.04 so I tested it again.

Ubuntu 9.10 WINE 1.1.39

Well sadly it does the same thing :(

This does not sound good at all.

Looks like I will have to still use it in Windows Vista

Remember I made it work, albeit very slowly through Wine doors on Linux Mint.
