-Installing (requires flash player and mfc42 to be installed)
-Using the program
What does not
-Chat has is a little glitchy. Special characters are printed as uninterpretable text.
-Launching "Age of Empires II: The Conquerors" worked, but kept hanging on connection screen if hosted by someone else. When hosted by you, nobody will connect to the (in-game) lobby.
What was not tested
-All games except "Age of Empires II: The Conquerors".
Remember to install mfc42. mfc40 will not be sufficient. When installing flash player, don't run in Windows 8 compatability mode.

Open wineconfig and go to the tab "Libraries". Type "dnsapi.dll" in the "New override for library:" box and click the Add button. When added to the list, select "dnsapi (native, builtin)" and click the Edit button. Select "Native (Windows)" and click Ok.
This should fix the problem.
