* Installation; in order to complete the installation I had to manually copy the setup .exe file "homm5_demo.exe" without quotes into the directory it was looking for when it was about to finish installation it wanted to find the .exe in "~/.wine/drive_c$ cp homm5_demo.exe windows/temp/pftfbdc.tmp/Disk1/" without quotes. Copying the file into that directory and clicking OK when it wants that directory to complete the installation will complete the installation.
* Shortcut placement on KDE 3.5.3 desktop
What does not
~ Game fails to start; clicking on the desktop shortcut icon loads the demo's splash screen and the game appears to load with the splash screen displayed for a few moments before minimizing at the bottom of the KDE desktop, in the lower left hand corner you can see the shortcut icon graphic is the same as the minimized application. I right clicked on this and chose Restore but it just put the icon at the top left corner of my screen and nothing else in the center except an area which was frozen and I had to ALT-TAB to get out of the frozen window and open an X Terminal and stopped the program manually.
What was not tested
- Nothing; program fails to run following installation
- Uninstallation via "wine uninstaller" without quotes; I decided to quickly remove it [manually] instead.
