What was not tested
Here are the steps I took to make this work:
1) Create a separate wine setup for this game, making sure to set the Windows Version to "Windows 95":
env WINEPREFIX="/path/to/wine/install/1602AD" winecfg
2) Copy the files off the CD and onto a HD location that Wine will be able to access. The game needs the CD in order to run.
mkdir -p /path/to/wine/installs/1602AD/drive_c/1602AD
cp -r /your/cdrom/drive/* /path/to/wine/installs/1602AD/drive_c/1602AD
3) Install the game based on the path above, do not install DirectX 6.0:
env WINEPREFIX="/path/to/wine/installs/1602AD/drive_c/1602AD" wine "C:\1602AD\Setup.exe"
4) If you run the game via 1602.exe it will freeze and force you to kill it. To get around this, run the game by running Config.exe and clicking the "1602 A.D." button:
env WINEPREFIX="/path/to/wine/installs/1602AD/drive_c/1602AD" wine "C:\Program Files\1602 A.D\Config.exe"
I was able to play the game in all 3 graphics modes, with sound and music.
Aside from not being able to run the game via 1602.exe, it works flawlessly on my setup.
AMD Athlon 64 1.6Ghz, 2G DDR, ATI Radeon 9550

Page fault on 1602.exe
by Florian on Wednesday January 23rd 2013, 18:51
The page fault does not occur (at least for me) if
Config.exe (-> start Game) is started instead of 1602.exe.
the current directory is the one, that contains 1602.exe.
$ cd ~/.wine/dosdevices/c:/some/path/ (the path where 1602.exe is found)
$ wine "C:\\some\\path\\1602.exe"
It seems to be important to use the c: symlink instead of drive_c.
Good luck :)

i installed it yesterday, no problems arose. i did try and install without the 2k/xp installer patch, and that works too, provided your wine is configured to behave like windows 98. the only problem for me was that the video playback thats trigered on ingame events like finding ore, getting attaced etc. was very buggy. every once in a while you see a video, the other times the screen turns black and you have to press esc to get back to the game. as for the game hanging every time a new audio track plays, i simply disabled music and video and have not had any lags or other issues since.
wrong registry value for cd drive
by Johannes on Wednesday September 9th 2009, 8:30
It seems to be a common problem of ANNO 1602 KE self to write a wrong value to HKCU/Software/ANNO 1602/CDROM_DIR. for instance i had a value something like Z:\media\ANNO1602_KE. just change it to a drive letter, assign that drive letter in winecfg to the cds directory and everything should be fine.
