Need help with wine/Lutris for windows software
Duke Takeshi commented on 20 January 2019 at 12:26 am UTC

Hey guys,

I hope someone can help me with this. Since I always use proton or Lutris for running windows games, I never really got the hang of all the wine configuration stuff. Here's my problem:
I run magic the gathering: arena via Lutris. It really works like a charm. However, I want to try to run this tracker alongside it:

It should be just a small program, but I could not get it to work. Here is what I did:

From the MTG arena game in Lutris I chose "run EXE inside WINE prefix" and chose the MSI installer of the tracker. The installation went through without errors and also the respective folder was created in drive_c/Program Files/ containing the tracker EXE. However, when I try to launch that file (again with Lutris -> run EXE inside WINE prefix) the program crashes. This is my console output.

The Website says that the only prerequisite is to have .NET 4.6.2 or higher but the Lutris script installed 4.7.2 so actually it should work in theory.

Anyone got any ideas?

The compatibility of .NET is problematic at best. Most of the things I tried didn't work at all. Although in this case it may be that you're missing a dependency. The error "Could not load file or assembly 'Windows.UI, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null, ContentType=WindowsRuntime' or one of its dependencies." is not exactly specific.
