Well, just fyi this autostart function does work for it on Win 98 (it completes
full install), and the installer works on Win XP as well (as the autostart is
not needed there as the components it needs, like MDAC, are already present). So
I am not sure it is fair to say "the installer is broken" if it works on both
Win98 and WinXP but not in wine because Wine does not support autostart.
My long-term solution would be that Wine needs some kind of security framework,
where users would have, say, a "Security" tab in winecfg where they could select
various options like starting programs in the StartUp folder. But I believe that
if wine is trying to be 100% compatible with Windows then it should have at
least some (perhaps by default disabled) way to support _all_ the features that
Windows does, even if some of those can be abused.
