You forgot a few things here:

First it doesn't even start because they don't have a config file. OK,
they copy one from somewhere, it doesn't work because the drives are
wrong. Then they don't have the proper registry (winedefault.reg?
what's that?) Then they finally manage to run the installer but it
puts stuff in RunOnce that never gets run so the app doesn't
work. Then they finally make the app run but can't print anything. And
when they ask for help they get told to fight the FAQ-O-Matic crap to
maybe finally find an answer telling them they are an idiot.

So no, I'm not going to make a general public release just yet...
