In Wine 1.1.22 only half of the installation was possible then it would consistently crash making game play was not possible.
What does not
The Guild Wars complete installation & game play in Wine version 1.1.22
What was not tested
To see if Guild Wars would play after upgrading Wine from version 1.1.21 to 1.1.22
It seems that Wine is suffering from a regression with Guild Wars. I had previously installed Guild Wars in Wine version 1.1.21 with out a problem & it worked wonderfully. I had just recently tried to do a new install of Guild Wars on a computer running Wine version 1.1.22 & it would not complete installation, even after multiple attempts. I completely removed Wine version 1.1.22 & installed Wine version 1.1.21. After doing this I was able to get Guild Wars installed, updated, & working without a problem.

NOTE: Guild Wars usually doesn't require any special settings to get working. The advice listed below is only for those who require help installing, running, or troubleshooting Guild Wars.
Simply use the installer found at guildwars.com. Unzip the installer and run it using Wine:
WINEDEBUG=-all wine "C:\Program Files\Guild Wars\Gw.exe"
WINEDEBUG=-all will stop the flood of fixme messages generated from normal use. If you require debugging, omit this option.
If you are having graphics issues, use regedit to try some registry keys:
Appending these flags to the run command may help you:
