Hello and welcome to LQ.

Don't put wine in the command maybe.

hahaha.
A signature line, not part of conversation.

From other site.
"Step four, open a terminal where the Warframe.msi file is at and run wine msiexec /i Warframe.msi. This will start the launcher. "

Meaning, I take it, are you in the proper directory when running the command? Is everything in the proper case, including the Warframe part?

Command line has to be exact case, exact name of file.

There may also be some permission issues. Kind of doubt is because wine is running the file. I may to study that.

Also web pages suggest that other things need be present. https://www.reddit.com/r/Warframe/co...&ct=clnk&gl=us

Maybe I should ask if there are any errors. I'd assume the installer program switches would also allow a test run.

The proper directory, I don't know what mean. I will look it up to understand what your talking about. How do you switch directory's.

PS:Thank you for your reply.

Either start in the directory that the warcraft is in or make direct path to the installer.

I usually just use the wine installer much like windows add program

Did you get the link to the extras you may need to have installed?

Might consider playonlinux. One issue is you may have already put too much on your system. They claim they have a script for this game.

Some of the versions of this game may work well in linux.

We still don't know much about the program you have. It may have issues.

If you don't even know how to change directories, the learning curve is going to be very steep. The command to change directories is cd.
Code:
cd /path/of/directory/to/change/to
obviously changing the name to the one where you extracted the files. I have no idea what that is.

The normal way to install wine is to use the distro's package or software manager.

You might be able to use the winehq pages to see if your system and disto can use the latest version. See the winehq site for your distro first.

basically the same way you did on windows .

use the "cd " comand in the terminal

some commands for the Microsoft terminal" cmd.exe" are the same
but where as the windows cmd.exe is so hopelessly limited the linux terminal is not

http://linuxcommand.org/learning_the_shell.php
-- collection --
http://www.tldp.org/guides.html


As above it is NORMALLY best to use your built in package manager to install "w.i.n.e."
Code:
zypper in wine
dnf install wine
yum install wine
apt-get install wine-staging
pacman -Syu wine-staging

YES!! you do need to " type things"
normally it is easier to type than to "point and click" with a mouse

but
your OS should have a GUI for installing software
point and click and put a check mark in the box for installing wine and click on whatever "button" to install

NOTHING happens? At all? No messages printed, no errors, no popups, nothing?

@Jefro I do not have accest to packagemanger. I am currently running Debian Wheezy on the Steam OS. I download POL instead to get the need version of wine. I verifed the version need on WineHQ. The version of wine need to install warframe is not funtioning on POL. I appoglize about the delay I wanted to learn more and not waste people time.

@jhovv Thank your I followed those steps and come with this error.:Fizme:msi:ITERATE_DUPLICATEFILES WE SOULD TRACK THESE DUPLICATE FILES AS WELL

@Suicidaleggroll : Yes I do get and error message when following the steps to install the MSI file. "ITERATE_DUPLICATEFILES WE SOULD TRACK THESE DUPLICATE FILES AS WELL" I believe it's due the version of wine currently running on my os. [wine 1.4.1]
