I have my doubts whether the lack of Shockwave is the cause. But you could try
You can get to there by
Then clicking shockwave, followed be the "Standalone Installer" link in the
instructions. The downloaded file, Shockwave_Installer_Slim.exe, runs fine under
Wine and installs the SwSupport.dll dll into windows/system32/Macromed/Common.
And the TaxCut installer does find it then.
In general, you can find out what DLLs are found by setting the WINEDEBUG
environment variable to +loaddll.
It would be interesting to know what happens next on a real Windows system. On
my Win2000 system, I also get the splash screen, followed by the grey window. So
I am assuming at that point it should attempt to read another file off the CD.
When running the installer, be sure to for change to the CD directory, that is:
cd /mnt/cdrom (or wherever)
Some installers are picky about that.
I'll poke around a bit more and see if anything jumps out at me.
