Hi:

I'm trying to install Dark Crusade through wine (I have DoW and Winter Assault already installed and working fine), but when it gets to the CD key part I can't type in my code. It won't let me. I type the keys, and nothing appears on the screen. When I try to cancel, the install hangs. What gives?

Anybody seen this problem before? I have no clue what I'm doing wrong.

Try left-clicking the text box a few times, then type the key. If it doesn't work, repeat till it does. (This worked each case I encountered this problem -- with different games though.)

Also, just a long shot: perhaps the text you type is invisible. Try to completely input the key a few times.

what version of wine are you using? that may or may not affect it.
try using a newer one. I have dark crusade working on 0.9.58, the ubuntu package manager only gives out 0.9.46.

if that fails try putting it in a virtual desktop. SO wine config, graphics enable it and set up the dimensions.

hope it works out!
