Installer problem

Post by KredikShaw » Sun Feb 09, 2020 9:33 am

Hello, i spent the whole day fighting this and i think i need help.

The thing is i downloaded a game, and the installer works well until it gets to the point of asking if i want a icon on the desktop. The text is flickering and the installer gets stuck there, without any errors or clues about what is going on. I tried with a lot of different wine versions, settings on lutris, and winetricks and i got no way of making it work. On a desperate attempt i tried the installer on a virtualbox with windows 10 and the installer worked perfectly.

Is there a way of executing a virtualbox inside a wine prefix? or making a wine prefix from a virtual machine?
I use Arch Linux.

If it is legal, could you share the download link?

This probably doesn't work, but you can try to copy the directory where the game is installed from the Windows 10 Virtualbox to your Wineprefix.
