           Summary: Windows Media Player 11 setup fails
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.48.
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/A
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: download, Installer
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-misc
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: alex at thehandofagony.com

The setup program for Windows Media Player 11 tries to validate Windows if the
version is set to XP, and this fails.  There was talk some time ago about an
ntlm_auth patch that would allow the validation, but it fails for me even
though I have the correct version of Samba installed.

However, the installer does not run the Genuine check if the Windows version is
set to Vista.  When run thus it does work, however; it tries to create an
instance of a wuapi.dll class, which is not registered in Wine.  When I use a
native dll from XP and register it the console output changes saying no
instance could be created.
The installer then says no updates could be found.
