           Summary: IBM Firmware Unpacker Fails
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.20.
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://www-
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-msi
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: deskstarwinebug at mytrashmail.com

This bug relates to installer/archiver issues.  It's typical of vendor supplied
"Windows only" device firmware updates.  The device here is a class of IBM hard
disks.  You don't need to own one to duplicate this bug, it is purely archive

The URL gives a self-extracting EXE named pz2z18us.exe.  This self-extracting
archive unpacks a setup program and cab files.  The inner setup program fails. 
It is supposed to create a bootable floppy disk.  It doesn't get that far.

Tested on a fresh install of Ubuntu x86 (32 bit) with a fresh install of
WINE 0.9.20.  This is in fact the first WINE test I ran, so there was no prior
WINE corruption at all.

I have a stack dump but you should also be able to generate your own.

Forgive me if this bug is already in the database, I did look.  I know you have
been working hard on MSI and installer issues so I thought you would appreciate
this report, whether it bears directly on that or not.  If I put the wrong
category please correct.
