Trying to install a Steam game under Wine and getting an error: Invalid platform (solved)


Hey all,

I'm using Steam through Wine and I want to play a game (Tekken 7). The entry under the WineHQ page says that this game should work perfectly fine under these conditions, but when I visit the library page there's no download button. When I right click on the game name and try to install it, I get a popup error with:

An error occured while updating TEKKEN 7: (Invalid platform)

I have tried using both 'winetricks steam' as well as downloading the SteamInstaller.exe from their website.

When I run winecfg and set the default to w10 (as it is a w10 only game) it does not change anything. This includes applying it to all of the .exes in the C:/ Steam folder.

Thanks in advance.

Slackware 14.2 / Radeon r9 280x / AMD 4100 / 4GB RAM

If you haven't installed on wine before, you save the zip, open it and run
Code:
wine /path/to/setup.exe
My guess is that your problem is related to 32/64 bit issues. On 64bit slackware, you can only build & install 64 bit stuff unless you have 32 bit compatability libs installed. If you have all relevant compat32 stuff installed (a few compat32 packages & all compat32 libs) then I'm mystified. Try running
Code:
file /path/to/some_file
and it will detect if it's 32 bit or 64 bit. Slackware is one of the few truly multilib systems out there.

I solved it.

This specific game, like an increasing number of newer games, only runs on 64 bit applications, so Wine tself has to be compiled with 64 bit support.

Fortunately alienbob has a slack binary for this too.

Right. So my guess was correct, it was a 32/64 bit issue. Mark this solved then.
