What works

Starts and displays diagnostics information.

If you have an installed version of Microsoft Office 200X product you can verify it's "genuine" status (this works).

What does not

The tool requires native comctl32.dll override because some required property sheet control functionality is currently stubbed out.

wine ./MGADiag.exe
fixme:propsheet:PROPSHEET_InsertPage (0x700b4, 1, 0x132cb0): stub
fixme:propsheet:PROPSHEET_InsertPage (0x700b4, 2, 0x12fc50): stub
fixme:propsheet:PROPSHEET_InsertPage (0x700b4, 3, 0x1327b8): stub
fixme:propsheet:PROPSHEET_InsertPage (0x700b4, 4, 0x1327f0): stub
fixme:propsheet:PROPSHEET_InsertPage (0x700b4, 5, 0x132840): stub

With native comctl32.dll override, the property sheets are created and one can view the diagnostics information.

Most information related to WGA status of Windows obviously can't be retrieved because this is wine.


What was not tested

Nothing because the tool only displays diagnostics.
