in 'No One Lives Forever Demo'

Method to reproduce:

Download 'No One Lives Forever Mega Mix Demo - Version 1.002' from (
unzip and install the game
start the game wine NOLFDEMO.exe
the game will start to load sit in a loop.

reverting the patch corrects the problem.

NOTE: The game attempts to create a file c:\Program Files\Fox\No One Lives Forever

The file must not exist for the regression to show, so it should be deleted, if it exists, before
testing. With the patch applied the game can be made to start by creating the file echo "" >

MSDN Notes:
If the function fails, the return value is HFILE_ERROR

There's no reference to returning FALSE is OF_EXIST is passed as a parameter.
