           Summary: Where’s Waldo installer refuses to run since it can't
                    phone home via WinHttpRequest com object?

           Version: 1.3.5
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2

        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org

When you run the installer, it asks for your email address, and aborts
complaining that you have to install msxml to continue.

After doing 'winetricks msxml3', you get further; it then complains
that you can't install without a working internet connection.  The log

err:ole:CoGetClassObject class {2087c2f4-2cef-4953-a8ab-66779b670495} not

which seems related; that's the GUID for something called WinHttpRequest
Component.  I think it's part of winhttp 5.
