Additional Comments

The autorun screen is grey, but the buttons are visible and active. Electronic registration doesn't work. It just shows a white window. Do "killall -9 EReg.exe" to continue with the installation. The game may complain about a missing d3dx9_27.dll. To fix this copy the from the DirectX directory of the installation media and use cabextract on it. Then copy the extracted d3dx9_27.dll to your ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 directory . Also you must set "UseGLSL" to "enabled" with regedit. I tested the game with GF6600,latest drivers and on Ultra High video setting. The only video problem I noticed was that the shadows of the flying Nazgul in the War of the Ring map are solid.

Installation should work in 0.9.39 (should display the white window with yellow clickable text - "Install" cca at 3rd dialog). Don't forget to set UseGLSL registry key to 'enabled' to use OpenGL 3D graphics. Depending on Your 3D drivers You may see only partial render.
