Additional Comments

The setup, unlike AVG Free 8.0 in Wine, does not choke on the verion of Windows you're running, but rather (presumably) at a problem with Wine. "Something bad happened in the application. Error diognostic saved to C:\windows\temp\avg7inst.err" The installer than continues, only to tell you the install failed, giving you this error message: "Local machine: installation failed Initialization: Warning: Windows Firewall activity checking failed. Error 0x80040154 Warning: Failed to compare versions between psapi.dll and relater windir redist psapi.dll_WNT. Internal error. Value not evaluated. Warning: Failed to compare versions between dbghelp.dll and relater windir redist dbghelp.dll_WNT. Internal error. Value not evaluated. Installation: Error: Action failed for file avgtdi.sys: starting service.... Service request timeout (1053)"
