WineX - installing Diablo 2


Hey Guys

I have WineX 2.11 (I think) installed.

I've been told to open the dir in konsole then run "xinex setup.exe"

I tried it with Starcraft 1st but with no luck

any other ways of installing a win32 program with XineX??

Thanks Guys

What's the difference between Wine and WineX ? I have Wine installed myself (20030813) and am trying to install a game as well. I get this error trying to install from cdrom :

I can hear the CD spin and the initial InstallShield progress bar and some black window pop up but they just close again after a while without moving on to the actual installer.

ok well if it was a typo (twice) then post what error your getting when trying to run it....

for the other question, you can go to the devolopers sites to read the difference, but in lamens terms winex is built for specifically for games, and wine is just a floater i guess you can call it where it can run various things, including games, but doesn't have the support and guarutees like winex does when it comes to games...anyways, there are issues with installershield installers, so maybe look at this thread i know it isn't about your game, but the issue at hand and the fix is what you want to look at...

You may want to get a transgaming subscription so that you can download the latest winex build from them. The current is WineX 3.1 and it has better installshield support than in the past, and is likely to support your game more-so than the older 2.11 version

Ok, I've succeeded in installing the original version of the game (EverQuest if it matters..) but when I try to install an expansion pack I get an error saying it (InstallShield) failed to copy IKernel.exe to c:\\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Engine\6\Intel 32 and that I should check my permissions. So I created this path (it didn't exist to start with) and made sure I had permission to rw in all these directories. Fired up wine again and still got the same error. So I copied the file manually to this dir and ran setup again. The error message pops up in a windows type error box from within the installer, not in the terminal.

should be easy with winex3 /path/to/setup.exe if the game is on a CD-ROM, make sure it is mounted. You might need to setup your configuration file found under .transgaming in your home directory

Hey Guys

Here is the (very long) config file for WineX 3.3.0
Can anyone see anything wrong with it?

WINE REGISTRY Version 2
;; All keys relative to \\Machine\\Software\\Wine\\Wine\\Config

;;
;; MS-DOS drives configuration
;;
;; Each section has the following format:
;; [Drive X]
;; "Path"="xxx" (Unix path for drive root)
;; "Type"="xxx" (supported types are 'floppy', 'hd', 'cdrom' and 'network')
;; "Label"="xxx" (drive label, at most 11 characters)
;; "Serial"="xxx" (serial number, 8 characters hexadecimal number)
;; "Filesystem"="xxx" (supported types are 'msdos'/'dos'/'fat', 'win95'/'vfat', 'unix')
;; This is the FS Wine is supposed to emulate on a certain
;; directory structure.
;; Recommended:
;; - "win95" for ext2fs, VFAT and FAT32
;; - "msdos" for FAT16 (ugly, upgrading to VFAT driver strongly recommended)
;; DON'T use "unix" unless you intend to port programs using Winelib !
