Wine 6.0.3, installed from Mint's app rep.
I've got a game, Deus Ex Game Of The Year edition, from Steam that I've installed a mod for, GMDX, which has it's own "executable" that I have to run to run the game and the mod together.
It is a lnk file, that I have opened through Steam (but not under Proton as that cannot be enabled for games added by the user) as just running it with Wine wouldn't work (probably for piracy measures, if I had to guess) and now after going from Mint version 20 to 21, it has stopped working and running the file without Steam as a Wine Application on Terminal shows this message:
Running it on Steam causes it to close before anything can even appear on the screen.
Code: Select all
0054:err:ntoskrnl:ZwLoadDriver failed to create driver L"\\Registry\\Machine\\System\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\nsiproxy": c0000003 (Translation from Finnish) Couldn't start program as it doesn't exist, or there aren't any attached programs to that file. (Translation from Finnish) ShellExecuteEx failed: Couldn't find file.
I have no idea what to do or if I'm even doing the right thing (like executing it through the Terminal or through Steam). Quick search has led me to some people who say Wine doesn't even support lnk files.
I know about the C drive directory Wine creates. But the file I'm running is in Steam's game directory which is on the normal Linux file system (I don't even know correct words to describe my problems :( )
Also, as I mentioned that this happened after the Mint update, I would post it on their forums. But they seem to have their servers under maintenance, or some other problem.
