HowTo / Notes

This program needs mfc42 and Flash Player
Before you install this application, be sure you have mfc40, mfc42 and Adobe Flash Player installed.
Fix the forever logging in problem

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.
