Additional Comments

Winetricks and Mono (said not found, declined offer to install) were not used. Requires a DLL override for "riched20.dll", select "Native (Windows)" (bug 14980) to allow for activation by Microsoft account, as well as not having black font/size labels. The registry value "HKCU\Software\Wine\Direct3D\MaxVersionGL" (DWORD) must be set to "30002" (hex) to avoid a black screen on load. You may need to create the "Direct3D" key first if it is not present.
