Is this where the setup program resides?  Did you copy it from media or 
download the program.  This will NOT capture any errors generated by 
wine.  Please see my previous post on how to use the command to create a 
logging file.

And it is missing all of the error/warning/fixme messages generated by 
Wine which are sent to the error pipe.  You are only capturing what 
appears normally as text on the screen.  Both outputs are needed for
