Don`t give up so easy...
I'm probably getting the same error, so let me amplify.
I downloaded Microsoft's free version of Visual C++, file vcsetup.exe.
I ran wine vcsetup.exe. It started execution and popped up this box:
Verifying File: vcsetup
Almost immediately, it popped up this box, obscuring the first. All I could do was click OK and exit.
Unable to find a volume for file extraction.
Please verify that you have proper permissions.
I ran the Linux strace command (captured with script) and this line:
open("/dev/hda", O_RDONLY|O_NONBLOCK|O_LARGEFILE) = -1 EACCES (Permission denied)
Now why oh why would wine be trying to open /dev/hda??? I don't know. But that's the only line I could see that looked like a permission problem.
This looks like a wine bug. I'll try to search the wine bugzilla database.
Ah! This is bug 5351, which is caused by Microsoft's assumptions. It can be solved with the volnum command in the winetricks script. But I just used these equivalent commands:Code:
cd ~/.wine ln -s drive_c harddiskvolume0 cd dosdevices rm c: ln -s ../harddiskvolume0 c:
