           Summary: Cannot successfully unlock Tales of Monkey Island:
                    Chapter 2 - The Siege of Spinner Cay anymore
           Product: Wine
           Version: 1.2-rc6
          Platform: x86-64
               URL: http://www.telltalegames.com/
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: mshtml
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: hein at kde.org

"Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 2 - The Siege of Spinner Cay" is a 3D
adventure game made by Telltale Games.

The game is available for purchase and download online at

After purchasing the game, you download an installer executable:
ToMI_SiegeOfSpinnerCay_Setup.exe. This installer appears to complete

Upon launching the installed game, you're presented with a launcher window in
which you can either enter your Telltale online account name and password, or
the game-specific serial key (which you can find out on the website after
logging in), to unlock the game.

Unfortunately, the launcher gets stuck on "Unlocking, please wait."
indefinitely after entering either information.

This is a regression: In older Wine versions - unfortunately, I don't quite
remember what version - the game installed, unlocked and then worked

Of note is that with this older version, the launcher was just a white
rectangle with a HTML line edit where you put the serial and a Submit button to
then unlock it. Now, the launcher appears graphically much more sophisticated,
with proper backgrounds, themed input forms and animations. But it's probably
still HTML-based. Thus my assumption is that what happened here is that Wine's
MSHTML implementation has greatly improved, but those code changes have also
broken the crucial bit that makes unlocking work.

My Wine is 1.2-rc6 on Fedora 13 x86_64. I started with a fresh ~/.wine with
default settings, then used the latest version of winetricks to install the
gecko component, and then ran the installer.
