I tried at again at home and reinstalled the game.
I run the setup.exe and the installer started fine. 
In the beginning I got this in the installer dialog:

The preselected installpath was:
c:\Program Files\Activision\GUN

I tried to change it to /home/fredrik/Wine_Applications (without creating the folders "Activision/GUN")
But then the installer complained about:
"Seleceted does not have 3112 MB free"
...even though I got 100 Gb free space.

So I kept the original preselected installpath "c:\Program Files\Activision\GUN"

At end of install I got the choice to install DirectX 9.0, I selected not to since it did not work last time.

I restarted the computer. Put in the game-cd in cd-drive.

Double clicked on the Gun-icon on my desktop, but as like yesterday I just got this popup:
<A debugger has been detect>
Unload the debugger and try again

If any one got any clue of what to do please let me know!
Best regards
