As an alternative to Wine you could try something like VMWare (or
Plex86). I use VMWare a lot to run my accounting package.
VMWare works ok on XTerms I believe. I've not tried plex86.
Also, you might want to try Crossover Office (www.codeweavers.com
) as it
runs all of office 2000 pretty well so it might run the app in question.
I use CodeWeavers other product (Crossover Plugin) to run Quicktime et
al under Linux.

This got me thinking.
At work, I have a client who would benefit greatly by moving to Linux
desktops, and remote X apps. The only issue (and isn't it always?) is
that they are dependent on one really crappy windows app.
I've tried using std. wine, but with little success (as with most real
windows apps and wine in my experience). I wondered if winex fares much
better for non-games related software?
Have you tried any random windows apps?
I'd love to hear the results.
