Doesn\'t detect setup has finished

The Half-Life 1 script at has an issue where after it finishes running the setup.exe file from the disk it doesn't know it's finished. The script runs these two lines:

wine d:\setup.exe


That second one doesn't seem to be detecting that it's finished, because the PlayOnLinux installer just sits at the "Installation en cours" which means "Installation in progress" in French. Is this a bug with the script or an issue with POL's detection?

On a side note, there was an issue where the Setup.exe file wasn't running from the CD. This was due to a limitation of the 16-bit architecture it relied on. If anyone else has the same problem (it won't even load the actual HL1 setup, but just move on and act like it has finished installing) then let me know and I'll post the fix.

Just figured out the fix. If you get this problem, open up System Monitor and kill any running processes of winevdm.exe. That is the process that the Setup.exe program runs in. I don't know if this was just an isolated problem I was having, but hopefully this will help anyone else if they have the same problem.
