#   Update gettext messages

#   Installation of 'vcrun2008 x86 sp1' is launched but does never appear nor end. Log: 'err:systray:initialize_systray Could not create tray window. Application tried to create a window, but no driver could be loaded.' Fix: Wine 3.0.3
#   Add POL_RequiredVersion "4.2.12"

# KNOWN ISSUES  
# - Wine 2.22 + Dotnet40 instead of Dotnet30 : UE3 engine does end, but POL installer does never end. Game launching fail. Fix: Wine 3.0.3
# - Upgrading Wine 1.4 (2013) -> 2.22 (2017)
#     dotnet30 -> dotnet40 (because dotnet30 requires a Root command on Ubuntu 18.04). Dotnet40 is not recognized by the game.
#     dotnet30 -> mono210 (because dotnet30 requires a Root command on Ubuntu 18.04). OK with Wine 3.0.3 (not 2.22).
