RE: Getting past the registration hang

I'm sorry. I was referring to the validation hang. I got that too but I think I got past it by either using Wine 1.1.20-1.1.21 and/or by waiting an hour before sending a kill -HUP to the validation process.
if ps -ux would show something like:
USER PID %CPU %MEM VSZ RSS TTY STAT START TIME COMMAND
mikael 7001 1.1 5.2 xxxx xxx xxx xx xx:yy 0:10 wine C:\xx\validator.exe
mikael 7002 23.0 3.0 xxxx xxx xxx xx xx:yy 0:29 validator.exe
I'd do a
kill -HUP 7002
which for some reason seems to fool wine (PID 7001) into that validator.exe (PID 7002) exited cleanly after a succesful run. Maybe the validator process (PID 7002) has already run successfully but PID 7001 wont notice that before the HUP signal is sent, I don't know.
