Progress on TiVo... but no cigar yet.

Last year, I tried installing Tivo Desktop 2.0, and it failed miserably:

Prompted by a request in wine-users,
I just tried installing both Tivo Desktop 1.3 (their win98-compatible version)
and Tivo Desktop 2.2 (for winxp).  2.2 wouldn't install (it really wanted to
install a service, and that didn't work) but 1.3 did install (with a bunch of
warnings).  Starting TivoPublisher.exe even puts up a GUI after
warnings like this:

fixme:win:EnumDisplayDevicesW ((null),0,0x7fb1f198,0x00000000), stub!
fixme:win:LockWindowUpdate (0x10020), partial stub!
fixme:win:LockWindowUpdate ((nil)), partial stub!
fixme:secur32:GetUserNameExA 3 0x7fb1f51c 0x7fb1f580
fixme:sync:CreateIoCompletionPort (0xf0, (nil), 7ec2b0dc, 00000000): stub.

Unfortunately, the GUI is nonfunctional.  (And kind of funny.)

Starting TivoServer.exe doesn't work at all (it seems to want a service
to be started).

At least the installer doesn't crash like it did last year!
