The problem is with the bundled extract.exe utility, which is an old 16-bit
command-line program that cannot work on amd64, and has a long history of

To install, follow this procedure. (You will need the "cabextract" program
installed to install Snapshot Viewer.)

Run the install script until it stops with the error message "A Setup
initialization file has been corrupted". Do not click OK to this message.
Open a terminal window and navigate to the equivalent of
c:\windows\temp\IXP000.TMP\ (this directory may change with different
instalations, but it should have a similar name and location.
run "cabextract snap901.cab"
run "wine acmsetup.exe /T *.stf"
Follow the install until its completion. It tells you that the program did not
install, but this seems to be incorrect.
run "wine c:\\program files\\snapshot viewer\\snapview.exe" . The program
should run. Try to view your .snp files. If your files do not open correctly,
please consider reporting a bug so it can be fixed. 

Apart from this problem, this program appears to work perfectly.
