What works

- Installation works, but can't add a start menu directory(errors below)
- Playing game works just fine, saving and restoring a game works
Game works just as I have remembered it when playing on Windows'98, but with faster response from the game UI.
This does not affect the speed of the events in the game.

What does not

- Creating start menu


DDEConnect error 400a (Popping up every time the setup tries to create a new Startup Menu entry)

Setup was unable to create program group called Sierra (and later Rama)

Setup was unable to add an item for Setup & Uninstall to a program

- Deinstallation through Start Menu Items as none could be created.

Additional Comments

I did install DirectX 9.0c but I don't know if that will affect this game. The Sierra Installer has a curious glitch when it starts: only the first S of "Sierra" is visible. This might relate to the DDraw bug in Wine that paints to the background rather than a superimposed layer. I have encounter the DDEConnect A400 error with numerous other games from that era.
