Hello all,

after looking into the tons of lines in my debug output i saw that it
was translating LOADS of my file names and paths. No idea why the
installation progress wanted to to that. When i removed all the unneeded
drives the application installed just fine!

linux:/home/mario # mount /dev/hdc /tmp/wine/cd/
mount: block device /dev/hdc is write-protected, mounting read-only

linux:/home/mario # mount
/dev/hdc on /tmp/wine/cd type iso9660 (ro)

<...Start Install Progress as user...>

My Problem now is that i am unable to start the app, because it´s
claiming that the CD is not inserted.

mario at linux:~/.wine/drive_c/Programme/GUT1MM> wine Media/GUT\ 1.exe
err:ole:CoGetClassObject class {e78f7620-96cb-11cf-a00b-444553540000}
not registered
err:ole:CoGetClassObject no class object
{e78f7620-96cb-11cf-a00b-444553540000} could be created for context 0x1
fixme:font:WineEngRemoveFontResourceEx :stub

What do i do from here?

Thanks, Mario
