I just created the SOFTWARE\Wine\Wine\Config key here on both Win98
and Win2k. It failed.

Both print the same error:

"Code not available.  The validation code could not be obtained.  This

unsupported operating system.  Please close this window and attempt
the validation process again, or use the Back button in your web
browser to return to the download details page.  [Error code:

After I remove the key it works on both.

I don't think GenuineCheck.exe is going to make it onto our list of
Gold Applications in the AppDB any time soon.
