Cannot run Kindle

Post by farzadmf » Sun Jul 25, 2021 11:56 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm a very noobie user of Wine, and I want to run Kindle on my Manjaro Linux

I've installed `wine` and `wine-mono` packages, and downloaded (and installed) Kindle,

However, when I run it, it just shows the splash screen and exits.

I tried to check the logs and I see this:

```
wine: Call from 7B010F56 to unimplemented function msvcr120.dll.?_NewCollection@_AsyncTaskCollection@details@Concurrency@@SAPAV123@PAV_CancellationTokenState@23@@Z, aborting
```

Not sure if it's the actual reason that it's failing (there are a lot of lines in the terminal!), but any help is deeply appreciated.

If you had any problems following how to get this to work using the link to my thread in my previous post please let me know. You'll need to post back if you created a separate prefix for the Kindle app or if you let if default (e.g., did not specify WINEPREFIX=<xome path> when you ran the installer).
