The video is embedded inside the training application, it does not launch the media player outside of the app. Having the training app run within a virtual desktop makes no difference to the embedded video.

Couldn't find anything in the registry that seemed to point towards media player.

There are no ini files that I can find either, even with a search.

The windows version of this software installed without a hitch in Wine. However, the training application throws up the following error when I try and use it without media player installed at all:
This product may require a newer version of Windows Media Player OLE Error 80040154
Which I'm going to see if I can find some examples of online. Any thoughts are helpful, I appreciate them.
