One word.  Upgrade.

Fixme's are for the developers eyes.
For the most part, you can ignore them.
(You can filter them out with WINEDEBUG=fixme-all if you wish.)

Hmm, something InstallShield-y fails.
Somebody from CodeWeavers probably knows why, as they have experience
with this stuff:
But they're probably very busy people, so you better find out some more first.

You could search the archives for the UID, maybe there are others
who've seen the same:

As this error seems to recur multiple times and the installer
continues, my guess is that it's non-fatal, but I'm not sure.

Carrying on...

More fixme's, let's ignore those..

Why would that fail?
Perhaps you should help it out by making sure that there's a "Desktop"
folder inside your home folder.  And make sure that it's writable to
your Wine installation!

This could be why it fails, but then again, maybe it's not.

And there's no more output on the console for you to look at?
That's not so good, since now is when it's actually interesting to look at it..

Maybe the .exe file you've run starts another installer .exe.
If I had to guess, I'd say that that new process should inherit the
current stdout/stderr and thus continue logging to the console, but it
doesn't, or?

It'll do that.
