What works

Version: 1.2

Setup process after tweaking the aurun.cfg (so it's needed to copy the CD1 or DVD to hard drive)

DirectXVersion=9.0c ~~> DirectXVersion=0
StartMenuDXEULA=1   ~~> StartMenuDXEULA=0

After that the game should install without any trouble, wine will detect the installer needs an ActiveX control and will download and install the mozilla activex control if not already installed on the system.

What does not

The game itself, tried the cedega trick which consists of putting the native d3dx9_26.dll file in the system32 directory.


What was not tested

Everyting but installation ... :-/
