           Summary: Cannot install Irish Revenue software
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.28.
          Platform: Other
               URL: http://www.ros.ie/PublisherServlet/info/install (offline
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: blocker
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-gui
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: junk_mail at iol.ie

This windows software will not install under wine. Some details
Revenue software: at the above url free for download. This uses kcrypto & java,
and needs regularly refreshed browser pages. Kcrypto is a java applet available
at https://www.ros.ie:/applets/kcrypto.cab  but it is included in the offline

InstallAnyWhere creates a random install dir in ~/windows/temp with a version of
Java-1.42b_05 in it. This exits on an InvocationTargetException without
exploding any of the zips. Trying as a user, I got as far as a perms error on
/dev/nvidia0 with msvcrt.dll set native. Fedora has the screen set as 0600 with
owner as a luser, group root. So wine was tried with that luser, but still
barfed. I will attach a logfile as soon as I figure that process here out in

BTW, changing to .wine/drive_c/windows/temp/<random directory> and running
./Windows install.exe produces an identical fault, but allows you to fiddle
things better, because the install directory is no longer random.

Curiously, there _may_ be commercial potential in this one, as the Irish Revenue
intend to write a linux version, and porting to wine would certainly be the
cheapest way of doing that. Try an email to <roshelp at revenue.ie>
