Alternative method to install the Game Manager automatically, allowing to successfully access games. Fixes "Unable to connect" error when using old installers and being already connected to the Internet.
I created a 32 bit new prefix for installing.
Installer goes well until some write permissions are requested. The problem is that the directories are not being created with the right permissions. Manually creating them of fixing permissions, i.e., changing to 775 (drwxrwxrdrwxrwxrdrwxrwxr-x) or 755 (drwxr-xr-x), allows further installation.
There was not necessary to install any version of Internet Explorer with Winetricks.
Once installed, the program allows you to log-in, customize options, download and install purchased games (and demos, I guess).
What does not
Once your games are installed, the application hangs and won't run again.
What was not tested
Purchasing games in the Game client.
