Hi Dan,

if it works from a native install you are lucky. So why just don't stay
with a 2004 release of Wine? Read my signature! 20050111 has several
drawbacks as I already mailed these days: 

- Acrobat Reader 6 does not work
- MS Access hangs very frequently
- the Outlook splash screen is in the way and
  can not be removed by SplashScreenKiller
- Outlook crashes when opening mails with

Excel worked good with WineTools installation but there may be other
problems I did not get while doing my little test for the next
WineTools release.
