Installing a Bot on Debian

Post by pongy20 » Wed May 01, 2019 6:51 am

Hey, i am totally new in Wine. I have a issue with installing an Bot on my Server.
Here is the download link: https://lordsandknightsbot.com/downloads/

When I open the .exe, it works perfectly. But after a few steps I have to click on install and then it stucks and is not doing anymore. Can somebody help me?

Hard to tell without a terminal output.

But I get the program running with:
- wine-staging 4.7
- 32-bit wineprefix
- winetricks -q dotnet452

What you excactly does? I simply executed the .exe and selected the installation folder then the dialog comes with the button "install" when I click on this button a small whitescreen came.

I thought this is because the .exe creates a .msi and wine is not able to execute this.

Make sure you have installed wine-staging from the WineHQ repo. (Read https://wiki.winehq.org/Debian for more information.)
And you have installed a recent winetricks version. (You could use the version from Debian Sid and run "winetricks --self-update")

Because you need to install the .Net framework, I recommend to create a new 32-bit wineprefix.
All in one terminal line:

Code: Select all

WINEPREFIX=~/bot WINEARCH=win32 WINE=/opt/wine-staging/bin/wine winetricks -q dotnet452
After winetricks has successful finished. Install the bot:

Code: Select all

WINEPREFIX=~/bot /opt/wine-staging/bin/wine start /unix path/to/lordsandknightsBOTv4.12.setup.exe
Each time you want to run the bot you have to set the WINEPREFIX variable.

Code: Select all

cd "~/bot/drive_c/users/<name>/Application Data/lordsandknightsbot.com/Lords & Knights Bot"
WINEPREFIX=~/bot /opt/wine-staging/bin/wine LAKBot.exe
I thought this is because the .exe creates a .msi and wine is not able to execute this.
Wine can run msi files, so that shouldn't be the problem

Hey, thanks for your answer. I am very happy to see how much you do for my problem :). THANKS!!!

lakbot@vps:~$ WINEPREFIX=~/lakbot WINEARCH=win32 WINE=/opt/wine-staging/bin/wine winetricks -q dotnet452
------------------------------------------------------
WINE is /opt/wine-staging/bin/wine, which is neither on the path nor an executable file
------------------------------------------------------
lakbot@vps:~$ WINEPREFIX=~/lakbot /opt/wine-staging/bin/wine start /unix path/to/lordsandknightsBOTv4.12.setup.exe
-bash: /opt/wine-staging/bin/wine: No such file or directory
lakbot@vps:~$

This appears when I type it in. The user where I want to install the bot is named "lakbot" and have a directory in /home/lakbot

Sorry, I feel like very stupid in asking so many dump questions but what am I doing false :(

Ok, I think I found the problem. Now I want to start the bot but this message appears:

Code: Select all

You should never run Wine as your Linux root user.
See: WineHQ FAQ: 6.2 Should I run Wine as root?

Note: this is also why Wine is unable to draw to your X display (since you haven't setup X display access for your root user).

Edit: a-ha.. A VPS... Hmmm...

Did you install the winehq-staging packages?

Code: Select all

sudo apt install --install-recommends winehq-staging

I tried it a thousand times and it still is not working. Maybe is it possible to contact someone of you who can set this up for me? I would be so happy when it is working after spending so many hours :/. Sorry i am so stupid.

Well it definitely is stupid to suggest that random strangers, on the Internet, are given access to your VPS to pone it! :roll:

Wine requires a running X Server, for all but the simplest (pure-console) Windows applications.
This makes it bit harder to setup on a headless server (and it's generally not recommended, for security reasons, anyway)...
There are plenty of simple guides, on the Internet, documenting this process. e.g.: Running graphical application like wine on a headless server with xvfb.

Xvfb is a virtual X Server that Linux applications can render to, without any physical display, or monitor, attached to the system.

Ok, now I got another error message. Here you can see it.

Code: Select all

/opt/wine-staging/bin/wine cmd.exe /c echo '%ProgramFiles%' returned empty string, error message 'wine client error:0: version mismatch 571/581.
Your wineserver binary was not upgraded correctly,
or you have an older one somewhere in your PATH.
Or maybe the wrong wineserver is still running?'

@pongy20

Can you post the output from:

Code: Select all

dpkg -S "$(which wineserver)"
dpkg -S "$(which wine64)"
dpkg -S "$(which wine)"

Usually this error happens if you have a crashed wineserver, and then switch to a different wine version.

Code: Select all

ps aux|grep -i wine
Other than that, running wine headless is usually a pita... If the bot program is a "true cli program" (ie. no graphical window, but PURE text you can run from cmd in windows), you could perhaps try "unset DISPLAY", or even compile wine yourself with configure option "--without-x".

The lordsandknightsBOTv4.12.setup.exe indicates its a graphical setup program tho, but maybe you could install it on a windows computer and copy the folder over if its no fancy registry settings or system services required.

You want to uninstall the obsolete wine package and install the winehq-staging package (which will install: /usr/bin -> /opt/wine-staging/bin ; compatibility symlinks).
