           Summary: The Sims installer silently quits with no error output
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.15.
          Platform: Other
        OS/Version: other
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-misc
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: Rincebrain at gmail.com

I inserted my Sims CD (not Sims Deluxe, the original), and attempted to run the
installer as follows:

$ wine Setup.exe

No GUI appeared, nothing at all printed - it just exited in approximately a second.

$ time wine Setup.exe

real    0m0.563s
user    0m0.251s
sys     0m0.125s

Thinking my .wine might have been somehow outdated, I removed it and created a
new one, but the same behavior persisted.

Changing the Windows version to anything between Windows 95 and Windows 2003
inclusive did not change this behavior.
