UOClassicSetup_7_0_24_0.exe.Â Just put it in your Program Files folder and run it.Â CHECKING for updates.Â client.exe (which authenticates the account, connects to the world servers, and runs the game) seems to work flawlessly.Â Actual gameplay, once the game is installed by uo.exe (see What does not work) all appears to work, but I have not exhaustively tested it.
What does not
That first update, which actually installs most of the game files.Â The updater, uo.exe, shows up Program Files\Electronic Arts\Ultima Online Classic.Â It never finishes before crashing.Â My workaround was to run that part of the installation using Wine 1.4.1 in my Debian Wheezy install.Â This is workable because I have a separate partition for Windows software, that gets mounted to ~/.wine/drive_c/Programs during boot, either by fstab or by a mount -U statement in /etc/rc.local
What was not tested
Most gameplay.Â I did all of that in Debian Wheezy.Â Any third-party software.Â There have been no new updates to install since installing the game.
Installation: Put the Classic Client Installer in the directory where you want UO, and run it.
