winecfg crashes

Post by cpbl » Tue Jan 22, 2013 10:17 am

Wine stopped working under the latest update of Ubuntu.

I purged wine.

I reinstalled wine.

Running winecfg gives:

Code: Select all

err:module:import_dll Loading library winmm.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\windows\\system32\\msacm32.dll") failed (error c000007b).
err:module:import_dll Library msacm32.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\windows\\system32\\winm-.dll") not found
err:module:import_dll Library winmm.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\windows\\system32\\winecfg.exe") not found
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\windows\\system32\\winecfg.exe" failed, status c0000135
Has anyone seen this?

Try a clean wineprefix.

I'd like to take your helpful suggestion, but I don't know what it means.

There is nothing called wineprefix on my disk. (In particular, there is nothing at ~/.local/share/wineprefix).
Thanks.

A wineprefix is the directory where Wine puts its fake C: drive. The default is ~/.wine. Delete that and then run winecfg.

Thanks! Curious; I'm pretty sure I had already removed .wine when I purged and reinstalled. Does one need to go through that twice? or did I fool myself? In any case, despite lots of "fixme:"s and some errors, I did get to configure this time and my app(s) work.
Thanks!

Uninstalling Wine does not delete any wineprefixes.
