Wine with battle.net & iTunes

Post by 0wneeejj » Wed Oct 10, 2018 1:55 pm

Hello guys,

I recently installed wine-3.17 on Arch 4.18.12. I am trying to install iTunes and the Battle.net launcher (want to install WoW) but after the installer for Battle.net is loaded (Bnet update stuff) it gives me an error and asks me te try again later. And for iTunes the installer complete's but i cannot find the launcher for itunes. i also tried an program called "playonlinux" this allows me to install the Bnet launcher. but it will give me an error "error in main" if i check the debugger I can see this

0017:fixme:advapi:ReportEventA (0xcafe4242,0x0004,0x0000,0x00000064,(nil),0x0001,0x00000000,0x55f820,(nil)): stub

You need the wine-staging-3.17 package to run the Battle.Net launcher.
See also: WineHQ AppDB: Blizzard Battle.net App / Current (Installation Guide).

iTunes requires a 32-bit WINEPREFIX to run.
See: WineHQ FAQ: 6.5.3 How do I create a 32 bit wineprefix on a 64 bit system?

Note: Play On Linux isn't supported on this site. It also isn't a well maintained piece of software anyway...
See: WineHQ FAQ: 8.7 I used a third party application (PlayOnLinux, WineBottler, etc.) to install or manage applications in Wine and need help.
