Note that there isÂ two different installers, difference to be tested. The standard one, also labeled "Impulse Client - Vista/Windows 7" :
Or the one labeled "Impulse Client - Windows XP" :
The installer, installing games (only tried GalCiv II). The installer throws an error, but it still works (already reported in Bugzilla).
What does not
Requires winetricks dotnet20 gdiplus to work. Note that it may seem to work without gdiplus, but it will crash in the login screen.
What was not tested
Anything besides installing GalCiv II.
