Wine 4.3 ARM: bad format error when running .exe

Post by Sangye » Sat Mar 23, 2019 2:37 am

Good morning everyone, I am reaching for help because I am stuck while trying to install a game (Fallout 2 GOG edition)
I have a rooted Pixel C where I installed Wine v4.3 and I got sure (through Total Commander) that it has proper access to its folders and files where I downloaded the game folder, in the game folder there is a exe file I have been trying to run whether from the console, the wine installer or the run command, I have configured wine to run on windows 98, XP or 10 just to be sure it wasn't a compatibility issue but still I get this error message

Is it possible (as I have read) that this happens because I am trying to run a 32 bit program in a 64 bit system? It is a really old game but I know it normally doesn't have problems running on modern Windows

Thank you all for your help, let me know if you need any other info

Wine does not do CPU emulation and cannot run x86 programs on ARM.

Thank you, do you know if that feature is planned for a future release?

Well, that is not a trivial feature, it's horrible complicated.
If you like using alpha software, there is: https://github.com/AndreRH/hangover
