Hey, first of all, it does seem to insist on C:\. Also, it installs a
thingy which is obstenibly Java but doesn't seem to work on Linux (or
MacOSX, incidentally). Possibly it uses native code... Was anyone
tried this with Crossover Office, by the way? That can do IE,
certainly, so maybe it can do this as well...
