           Summary: Window 3.1 App needing Video for Windows fails to play
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.30.
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-multimedia
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: cshore at wightman.ca

I have an application designed for Windows 3.1 call Expert Easy Home Gardening
that only partially works under WINE.  It's not an important app for me, but I'm
filing this report in hopes that it will be of help to someone else, most likely
for some other application.

This application tries to install Video for Windows 1.1e (which crashes with an
unimplemented function error (I can attach info if desired)).  Skipping the VFW
lets the install complete successfully but the video functionality is
unavailable, and wine emits the following error:

fixme:mmsys:mmTaskCreate16 This is currently broken. It will fail
fixme:mci:MCI_LoadMciDriver Couldn't load driver for type L"AVIVIDEO".
If you don't have a windows installation accessible from Wine,
you perhaps forgot to create a [mci] section in system.ini

I suspect the mmsys: message indicates the culprit.
