What works

Installation, if you install to a path without spaces.

What does not

Running the player. First it complains about missing media player. Fixing that, makes it complain about not having a sound card. Following some tips on bug 11394, solved the sound card issue, only to get a "GameTap video card initialization failed", which I haven't been able to solve.


What was not tested

The games, since the player refused to start.
