Installation and operation.
What does not
System tray pop-up menu is dislocated far from the applet but it's still usable.
Requires Adobe Flash (release 16 used), mfc42.dll, and native dnsapi.dll due to unimplemented function "DnsFlushResolverCacheEntry_A".
What was not tested
Multiplayer game operation. The client does not support command-line options for games. This prevents it from being used with games that require command-line options to work around Wine bugs, MechWarrior 4: Vengeance and MechCommander 2 for example. It requires a valid game executable to launch and will not accept batch or command files.

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.
