What works

Installation is okay, and the program starts up and places an icon in the system tray. Right-clicking on the system tray icon works, and some of the available menu entries are partially functioning.

What does not

The moose avatar itself is green and displays the message "Voice Error: I'm Sick." There's no animation, no sound, and no voice. Trying to click on the moose avatar or trying to open the control panel from the system tray icon immediately causes the application to crash with a run-time error.

Please see the associated bug report:

I've tested the program on clean wineprefix, with/without vbrun, and with/without native ole. I also tried installing Microsoft Text-to-Speech (see, for example,, but none of this changed the application's behavior in any way.
