At first the install would exit because it couldn't get a DirectX version (it's using DxDiag functions). I used native versions of dxdiagn.dll, devenum.dll, and finally a native mscoree.dll got the install to work. The progress bar during file copy didn't work.
What does not
Game "Launcher" splash-screen does not display right, but "mainapp.exe" is the game executable. Game crashes on startup.
Once installed, I reverted to builtin DLLs and attempted to run. This gave a DSOUND error, so I attempted to run with a native dsound.dll, this seems to get a little farther. There is a little bit of sound that comes out of the speakers, and then it crashes with a segmentation fault.
What was not tested
Anything beyond application launch, as the game crashes during startup.
