windows version under Wine?
Can't Wine run a fair number of programs these days?
I tried it, it currently does not install.
Can't say if it runs after installing.
The wine people say only version 8 installs and run completely. Version 9
partially (and for those we'd better use the Linux version, anyway).
Versions X and XII, total failure.
The other alternatives are virtual machines. XP needs to be at SP3 for X
to work, but XP is EOL on 2014, the wikipedia says. Thus it would have to
be W7, which is more expensive.
Gratis alternatives, well, Android. I just installed Android 4 under
vimware player, emulating a tablet. I installed Acrobat 10.6, but it is a
PITA. The display is small, there are no guest tools (AFAIK), PgUp/PgDn do
not work. Gestures with a mouse are complicated things... In all, acrobat
in android, unless on real hardware, is barely usable.
