           Summary: Painkiller and Painkiller Black Edition cannot accept
                    CD Key submission preventing installation
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.1.36
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: blocker
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org

My experience is with the Black Edition and Wine versions 1.1.35 and 1.1.36;
this was also "reported" for the regular 1.00 version and Wine 1.1.33 in a
comment here: 
http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=3824 .

The installer starts fine, and indeed the CD Key validation box appears
correctly and allows the input of the key. Even pasting of the key from the
Clipboard to the input box works correctly (it didn't in 1.1.35).

However, no "OK" or "Accept" or "Contunue" button appears at the bottom of the
dialog (even with window decorations turned off, and while emulating a virtual
desktop), once you have input the key, there is no way to continue the

All previous dialogs (meaning the main VISE installer window and the previous
EULA and install chooser dialogs) appeared correctly and with whatever buttons
were appropriate in proper working order).

The only error reported in a console install attempt is

fixme:win:LockWindowUpdate (0x70036), partial stub!
fixme:win:LockWindowUpdate ((nil)), partial stub!

The main installer window can be exited with the Cancel button, however the CD
Key Validation window itself must be killed from the System Monitor (I use
GNOME), because it does not close when the main installer exits.

OS: Linux Mint 8 (Helena) (based on Ubunto 9.10
Wine 1.1.36
Overrides listed in global: gdiplus, mscrvt

I'm attempting to keep my "native" libraries to a minimal "install as/if
needed" basis, so I've only installed (via Winetricks) DOTNet 2.0, vcrun2003,
2005, and 2008, vbrun 6, quicktime, corefonts, tahoma and the fontfix, which
are needed for other games/apps I run under Wine. The games/apps that need
these subsystems are all working fine, and the other games I have installed
that don't use these functions are also working fine, so I don't feel that
there has been a general 'disturbance in the Force' due to their installation.
If there is a subsystem available via winetricks that would (help) resolve this
which I don't have installed, please advise. I'm happy to test.
