wine: could not load kernel32.dll, status c0000135

Post by lazazael » Tue Nov 03, 2020 5:35 am

I get this msg when I try to load up Doom Eternal using Proton 5.09 or 5.13-1 using the command line.

[user@ws Proton 5.0]$ ./proton run '/home/user/.wine/drive_c/DE/DOOMEternalx64vk.exe'
esync: up and running.
wine: could not load kernel32.dll, status c0000135

It used to work up until now. Ive already reinstall wine, steam and DoomEternal w/o success. kernel32.dll is in the folders:

/home/user/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/
/home/user/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/323910/pfx/drive_c/windows/system32/

Thanks for your kind help and information in advance!

The strange thing is taht this problem started today, w/o prior tinkering with wine or steam on my behalf.

Maybe its about file permissions? Since the files are there but couldn't be loaded. How can I make sure that my permissions are right for wine ?

I'm having the same issue. Any luck after almost a year?
