wine version 1.1.33.

I have a fully working wow installation, but when trying to use 'installwow.exe' from wow webpage to download/install wow burning crusade expansion, dialog appears trying to download but after about 10-15 sec, get error message "Failed to download world of warcraft installer. Please close all applications and try again".
