That's a good point, Austin.

Since it's known that the native msi installer doesn't work, it seems reasonable to me that you'd set the override to use the builtin msi.  This is similar to how it overrides the winver to win98 when installing mdac.  It's a known "trick" to get it to install.  How is this second guessing the user?

By that logic, winetricks would need to set most dll's to native when
installing _anything_, on the off chance that the user has overridden
the builtin dll.
