Installation of Indeo codecs fails on Wine 4.0.2, Linux Mint 19.2

Post by jextrevor » Mon Nov 11, 2019 12:22 am

I'm trying to install the Indeo codecs so I can run Battlezone without getting errors in the singleplayer menu:

Code: Select all

winetricks icodecs
(I'm running this on a fresh wineprefix, with no other software installed)

The first installer it brings up works fine, but the second one (iv5setup.exe) gets partway through the installation process then brings up an error dialog:

"The file C:\windows\system32\Ivfsrc.ax failed to self register. This could be caused by a corrupt registry or by corrupt or improperly installed DirectX Media runtime libraries."

Anyone have any suggestions as to how to fix this? I saw a few threads from around 2010 relating to this issue, so it looks like the issue has been happening for a while.

First make sure Winetricks is up-to-date.

Code: Select all

sudo winetricks --self-update
And use the "-q" option to install icodecs

Code: Select all

winetricks -q icodecs
