What works

Version: 1.5 

The initial start-up screen look promising, and comes up as expected. The installer extracts the archive and delivers the screen where you enter the licence information.

What does not

After the licence prompt information the installer hangs. Wine complains and dumps a whole bunch of fixme's.

d3dx9_27.dll - Located
by R Moore on Monday October 23rd 2006, 10:38
I was getting this error as well. It can be fixed by installing DirectX from the SW:EAW disc. After you do that, the DLL should be in the system32 folder.

However, I am still getting an error on mss32.dll, saying that it can't be found, despite it's existing in the appropiate. Going to try the deshrinker, and if that doesn't work, downloading the DLL from a website.

(Using Wine 9.23 in case it doesn't say on here)
