Hi Shelton:

Thanks for your answer and sorry for the late reply but I was 
busy with other stuffs.

Unfortunately it does not matter if I set wine to win98, 
windows2000 or even winXP the installer works the same way 
and gives the same error message (see above).
I think the solution should be trivial but I have no any idea 
about it.
I've tried this list earlier but that time I did not get even one 
Please, if you have any idea share it with me or give me 
suggestion what forum to turn to.
