dxwsetup.exe error

Post by jackychan01 » Wed Nov 13, 2019 6:55 pm

Guys could you help me out. I'm trying to install a windows software called xNormals (https://xnormal.net/). But I'm encountering this error "The program dxwsetup.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close". I'm not familiar with windows ecosystem so I don't know if this some kind of library the program depends on. Is there anything I can do? I'm running Ubuntu 19.04.

Unfortunately, the program has no installation options, so you need Wine staging to get past the dxwsetup installation.
After the installation, I also need the following winetricks to get the program running:
(I'm not sure if all vcrun verbs are necessary)

Code: Select all

winetricks dotnet40 vcrun2010 vcrun2012 vcrun2013 win7
Make sure you set the Windows version to Windows 7 (or higher) after running winetricks.
