What was not tested
I have copied mfc42.dll (don't forget override in wine) and installed Visual C++ libaries with winetricks. In 3Dsetup I have choosed Dx7. I have set up wine to emulate virtual desktop, because the video on the start changed the resolution and messed up conky on my desktop. It works like in Windows. PS.: sorry about my english

I am using wine-0.9.48. I have a problem with the wizardry_8_demo. I have mouse problems in the game, the mouse is friezed after a while, and I get back the control over it only if I press the numlock key on my keyboard or when I press the mouse scroll button. I wander how can this be fixed.

For me looks like bug in filesystem handling or may be in memory operations.
Still can play this game using my vmware in Software mode, but it is too slow.

1) Mount the first cd and execute the setup program.
2) If the installation is around 50% the setup program asks for the 2nd disk.
2a) open a new console. unmount the cdrom and eject it.
2b) insert disc 2 and mount it.
2c) click in the setup program to continue installing.
3) After installation get the MFC42.DLL from
4) Unpack the DLL and place it in your fake_windows system directory.
5) insert and mount the 3rd cdrom. Launch the game from the programs
directory in your fake_windows.
6) First you get a configure screen. Set rendering to OpenGL. And adjust
the other settings to your wishes (sound: use DirectX software emulation).
7) The configure program crashed here, so I had to restart the game, just
like I did before. Now you can play the game. Have fun.
I played the game for some hours. I didn't encounter any problems under wine and it ran smoothly.
