Before installation, run "winetricks ie6 dotnet20 gdiplus". The launcher fails to apply the downloaded update patch, and returns a "Path not found" error... but you can work around it by manually replacing the launcher with an updated one. It's possible to run/update/install games through the launcher by using the "/LaunchGame=" parameter.
