Wine issue with iKernel.exe

Yes I have searched the forum for previous posts of this topic and I've read and done what they have said. What I found on most of them was to get the dcom98.exe file and install it with the

WINEDLLOVERRIDE="ole32" wine dcom98.exe

I believe thats what it was but anyway I did that and it said I already had a newer version so I thought that was good so it can't be that right?

The problem is that I'm trying to install a game with wine and I have it configured and when I run

$wine Setup.exe

The splash screen for the game installer comes up but right after wards I get the "Error installing iKernel.exe: File not found". So I'm not sure if the file is misplaced or something is not configured right or I need extra files for this to work. Thanks for the help, it is much appreciated.

You have to run DCOM like this:

WINEDLLOVERRIDES="ole32=n" wine dcom95.exe

then try:

WINEDLLOVERRIDES="ole32,oleaut32,rpcrt4=n" wine setup.exe
