Installation - with the following echoes in terminal during:
fixme:shell:SHAutoComplete SHAutoComplete stub
err:menubuilder:InvokeShellLinker failed to fork and exec wineshelllink
Afterward, completes successfully.
What does not
Running the actual program fails with the following output to the terminal:
fixme:actctx:FindActCtxSectionStringW 00000000 (null) 2 L"atl80.dll" 0x347adc
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk "ATL80.DLL" failed to initialize, aborting
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\Program Files\\Spiceworks\\ruby\\lib\\ruby\\gems\\1.8\\gems\\spiceworks_updates-1.5.2\\data\\SpiceTray.exe" failed, status c0000142
Also throws up an error window with the following text:
An application has made an attempt to load ATL80.DLL incorrectly. Please contact the Application's support team for more information.
What was not tested
The actual application.
I see that the DLLs are included in the installation, but the difference that I'm seeing between my windows installation and the Linux install is that in Windows, there's an additional atl80.dll located way into the Windows directory - C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_Microsoft.VC80.ATL_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.42_x-ww_6e805841\ATL80.DLL
