No this isn't a joke, the application does not connect to the Microsoft Server,
which it should legitimately do, connect before it can scan the registry key's
for wine related keys and tell me my Windows isn't valid. According to the
Microsoft Website GenuineAdvantage.exe should connect to their server, download
a key, scan my hardware, then report that my windows isn't valid, but the
program fails to download the key/connect to their servers.

This program demonstrates valid bugs in the wininet .dll.
