XNA not installed Error

Post by rdaven5 » Mon Jan 25, 2021 3:56 pm

Hello,

I am trying to play a game using Wine (OS is High Sierra).

When I run the game.exe file it gives me this error "XNA is not installed - "Please install it by running xnafx40_redist_msi from the Installers folder". (error message in screen shot)

So, I placed that xnafx file (from the game download folder) into the c:\windows\Installer folder and did wine msiexec i/ xnafx40_redist_msi and it gives me "AppleFSCompression-96.60.1 Error: unsupported compressor 8" (as seen in screen shot below)

I have also run the dotnetFx40_Full_setup.exe file that came with the game, but it tells me I already have 4.0 or higher installed...despite the message telling me XNA is not installed. I'm stuck!

Ignore “AppleFSCompression-96.60.1 Error: unsupported compressor 8" it’s not relevant.

You don’t directly install dotnet you need to install using winetricks so it’s installed correctly.

It’s been a while but I believe winetricks also had XNA verbs use those over manually installing.
