default rule for dll's

Post by sibare » Mon Apr 27, 2020 12:07 pm

When we want to override wine built-in dll's with original windows dll's, we have to copy an orignial windows dll into ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 or we must be sure, that is is already in any directory.

By adding it into the list in the library tab in winecfg, we can then choose between different rules:
1. builtin
2. native
3. builtin, native
4. native, builtin

When we do not add the copied original dll into the list and define a rule: What is then the rule (default)?
1) or 3) ?

Thank you.
