I do have Windows 10 installed on another hard drive on this machine. Would it make sense to use Windows dlls? I have no experience with that.


The problem is due to recent Wine Staging changes.

Roll back to a previous version until it gets fixed.

One way to do this is by

Download wine-4.11-staging-improved-amd64.tar.xz from the Wine 4.11 section at https://github.com/Kron4ek/Wine-Builds/releases

unarchive wine-4.11-staging-improved-amd64.tar.xz in the Downloads folder

run this script (do a chmod +x on it and then enter it's path in a Terminal)

link-script.txt


run winecfg to update


To return to the original wine staging links run

link-scriptorg.txt


Now I try also to this way.... Thanks for now..... I hope works!!!
PS: I believe that I need to uninstall the last version of wine that is installed on my pc before to install the 4.11..... right?


There is an easier way

winetricks cmd

The problem was due to changes in Wines cmd.

The current Waves Central still won't work though because Waves Central moved to using Powershell and that doesn't work with Wine at the moment.

There is only a possibility that Waves Central might be able to run using one of the Windows PowerShell versions at Github, early 6.x versions up to 6-alpha-9 or maybe the 5 version, but it might not work.

Also wine has an inbuilt powershell.exe stub that needs to be deleted before the Windows powershell.exe start's working at all.

Hi,

I can't figure out how to run the script posted before in this thread; I'm not practical in linux, but I like it! In this thread I find 2 scripts kindly posted from Ubuntuuser, I downloaded these scripts and I tryed to running one of these, but I don't understand anything...
These are the steps used for change the installed wine-staging vrs:
1_ downloaded the wine vrs indicated before;
2_ unpacked the "wine-4.11-staging-improved-amd64.tar.xz" in /download folder
3_ open the terminal in this path and digit:

Code: Select all

sudo chmod +x link-script.txt

4_ run the script:

Code: Select all

link-script.txt


but the terminal output is:

Code: Select all

link-script.txt: command not found


can anyone help me? Thanks

The script was for a problem that doesn't exist anymore, it was for Waves before they started using Powershell.

So the script is not needed.

In general to run a script from a terminal, the whole script path needs to be included on the command line ie something like /home/your-user-name/Downloads/scriptname or change into the diectory where the script is located and then run it ie ./scriptname

WineHQ is up to version 5, so Wine-Staging-4.11 is a bit out of date.
