I'm trying to install the kindle app using Wine, to use a textbook. I've looked into other options like Calibre or the browser-based reader, but since I can't download my textbook for offline reading, and my book isn't supported in the browser, I have to use the official Kindle app. So whenever I try to run the kindle program I get a short 'unpacking data' message and the following error:

To see if my installation is broken, I tried downloading 123 Free Solitaire, whch worked with no issues.

I am running Linux Mint 19 Xfce, and wine-devel 3.18.0. So far I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling wine, using the stable instead of development branch, changing windows version in winecfg, and using winetricks. Any thoughts on what my issue could be? Thanks.

Newer versions of Kindle for PC don't install in Wine; workaround is to install a version older than 1.19.46099. https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=43508

Make sure you have the MS corefonts installed, either in the wineprefix or systemwide (bug 29045) and bind the process to one core (taskset -c O) when you run it (bug 35041).

I installed ttf-mscorefonts-installer and used taskset -c 0, still the same error.

KindleForPC-installer-1.17.44183.exe installs fine here in Wine 3.18 and a clean wineprefix.

Post terminal output from running that installer.

Update on this: I uninstalled everything related to wine, reinstalled everything, created a new wineprefix, and it works just fine. My guess is that I made a mistake installing my 32-bit wineprefix before, but I don't know for sure. Thanks for your help.
