Problem when launching Steam game (Arch Linux)

Post by Dead Zeppelin » Mon Jul 20, 2015 7:41 am

Hey there,

I just installed Steam with Wine on Arch Linux. I decided I would try to get the game DayZ working. It installed fine, but when attempting the first launch, it starts to install the "Microsoft VC Redist Package (step 1 of 4)" and I get a wine pop-up message saying:

Code: Select all

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

This can be caused by a problem in the program or a deficiency in Wine. You may want to check the [u]Application Database[/u] for tips about running this application.
If I click cancel on each of the four steps I get a command prompt window with the title "E:\SteamLIbrary\steamapps\common\DayZ_BE.exe" with just a flashing underscore in it.

How do I solve this?

Thanks
