Has anyone successfully installed Airfoil in wine? When I install it (Linux distro: Mint/Ubuntu 11), wine complains about .NET 2 missing. But it seems to install this automatically without problems. However, the Airfoil installation "ends" with this:

Airfoil has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. (Standard Microsoft message)


The program Airfoil.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. (wine error message)

The installation "completes", however. Then, when I try to run the program from the ...drive_c/Program Files..... folder, this error message shows:
