In theory No, but some say it works. Try it out, but make a restore point before just in case.

So I really wanted to try this. But after I have followed all directions and unzipped the minimal taste, I get the following messages that pop up. I didn't copy them all, but this is the beginning and very end.  Am I doing something wrong?
