And how it does with update?

BTW, Dan, would you be so kind as to check Firefox for 
ablility to validate Wine installation as Genuine Windows?

Just some minutes ago I've tried to download "Windows 
Installer 3.0 Redistributable", and the page [*] 
required my client to begin Windows validation.

As I have no Win32 FF installed (which is required 
for the 1st way, for validation plug-in to install), 
I've chosen 2nd way to do this: I ran some older 
GenuineCheck.exe under wine, it generated me some code 
and finally I was able to download the needed stuff :)

So, maybe the plug-in would work in Wine also?

Oh yes, as newest GenuineCheck.exe crashes, newest 
WGAPluginInstall.exe may fail also.  For this 
reason I've put online older versions of both: [2]
