RE: Does not install properly

I get very similar results.
I'm running umuntu intrepid beta with some updates. I've got wine 1.1.6~winehq0~ubuntu~8.10-0ubuntu1 from the wine .deb repo.
I get that same message "Failed to create C:\Program Files\Perfect World Entertainment\Perfect World International!".
The progress window this last time said it was at 99% and that it was copying unicows.dll, which is the last file in the install directory.
Seemed like it was pretty much finished installing, so I killed the wine processes (because if I dismiss the dialog, it starts uninstalling) and tried running the game.
I get a small shaped window with the game logo and after a while it says "connecting to server..." or some such, and after a minute or so it quits with exit code 2.
netstat -atuvpn shows that it's trying to connect to 126.96.36.199 on port 80, but gets no response (says SYN sent). I cannot ping that address, or get a reverse dns lookup to work. No idea where that IP comes from.
I also got these same results with wine 1.0 and wine 1.0.1.
With the 1.1.6 I even tried deleting my ~/.wine dir, running winecfg, configuring for XP+alsa before following the steps in the howto on this page.
