             Bug #: 30625
           Summary: Company of Heroes fails to install from DVD
           Product: Wine
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: -unknown
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: ajsb at vfemail.net
    Classification: Unclassified

This affects ALL versions of WINE and all versions of CoH , AFAIK.

As you can see in the reviews , all reviewers confirm that we can install Steam
version but DVD version ALWAYS  fails because installer crashes ....

Only way around this is to 1st install from DVD in Window$ and make a ZIP file
and pass content to Linux machine.

However i consider that ridiculous and doesn't seem too hard (well at least
compared with all the advances made in WINE ;) to solve...

There are lot's of people with the DVD and w/o Steam version that would love to
install game w/o need to go back ti Window$ to make ZIP files...

BTW, AFAIK, the updaters also crash so, one more reason to solve this and avoid
the ZIP files...

I appreciate that this issue could be solved once and for all , in special
because it might be similar to problems with some other games with installers
