What works

The install script is able to extract cab files from the install file (armyops260_win.exe) and appears to place them in the correct location (~/.wine/drive_c/windows/temp/RarSFX0/)

What does not

When it comes time for the installer to start extracting data from cab files, it fails with the following warning/error messages:

fixme:msi:ACTION_HandleStandardAction unhandled standard action L"ValidateProductID"
fixme:msi:msi_unimplemented_action_stub MigrateFeatureStates -> 1 ignored L"Upgrade" table values
fixme:msi:msi_dialog_handle_event Attribute L"Progress" not being set
fixme:msi:ACTION_HandleStandardAction unhandled standard action L"RemoveExistingProducts"
fixme:msi:ACTION_HandleStandardAction unhandled standard action L"UnpublishFeatures"
fixme:msi:ACTION_HandleStandardAction unhandled standard action L"RemoveRegistryValues"
fixme:msi:ACTION_HandleStandardAction unhandled standard action L"RemoveShortcuts"
fixme:msi:msi_unimplemented_action_stub MoveFiles -> 1 ignored L"MoveFile" table values
err:msi:MsiSourceListAddSourceExW unknown media type: 00000004

err:msi:ACTION_InstallFiles Unable to ready media
err:msi:ITERATE_Actions Execution halted, action L"InstallFinalize" returned 1627
err:msi:ITERATE_Actions Execution halted, action L"ExecuteAction" returned 1627

I'm assuming that the problem has something to do with, as I couldn't find this file, even if I looked for it immediately before I get the error message.


What was not tested

I tried most of the install options (typical, custom, full), but did not try every combination of possibilities under custom.
