    Problem running anything in Wine.

    So, I am new to Ubuntu, but not Linux itself as we use it at work (Gentoo). I'm trying to get WoW, Fallout 3, COD:MW, etc.... to install, but i get the following error.

    The program Installer.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

    This can be caused by a problem in the program or a deficiency in Wine. You may want t check http://appdb.winehq.org for tips about running this application.

    If this problem is not present under Windows and has not been reported yet, you can report it at http://bugs.winehq.org.

    I've checked all the forums, and such, but can't find anything. I have reinstalled Wine three times now. Yes, I have the latest 1.1.24. I've tried running it in Vista, XP, and 2000. I also tried in Win98 and downloading dcom98 from Winetricks. Really confused on this one. Also, on WoW, I am using the Download Client, as I know that works a lot better.

    Any insight would be nice, as I'm about ready to kick myself.

    As of late, I've been having this problem, and there's another guy on the WineHQ forums that reported this too. I think it's a regression in 23/24, but I'm not sure. What's your graphics card?

    In DOS, no one can hear you click.
