           Summary: Rise of Nations installer "cannot load pidgen.dll"
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.3.2
          Platform: x86-64
               URL: http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=versi
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: shiningarcanine at gmail.com

A week ago, I tried installing Rise of Nations under WINE 1.3.1 and it failed.
Since WINE 1.3.2 came out today, I decided to do a little experiment to see if
I could get Rise of Nations working on my system. I made a backup of my WINE
directory before doing this, so I can repeat and vary my attempt any number of
times necessary for debugging purposes. Anyway, after putting my CD key into
the installer, I was informed that it "cannot load pidgen.dll".

The application database says that mfc42.dll is required to install and run
Rise of Nations and following its advice to run "winetricks mfc42" fixes it.
WINE should not rely on official Microsoft Windows DLLs for its operation and I
could not find an existing bug describing this problem, so I am filing one.
