    Wow not running


    I seem to have an issue with running wow through wine suddenly.

    When I try to run it nothing happens, so I ran it using command and I get this error

    fixme:ntoskrnl:KeInitializeSpinLock 0x4577a4
    err:module:attach_process_dlls "DivxDecoder.dll" failed to initialize, aborting
    err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"Z:\\media\\disk\\World of Warcraft\\Wow.exe" failed, status c0000005

    I have always been running wow the same way through linux for a while now.

    I have made sure I have the code at the bottom of my config.wtf file as well.

    I also tried installing divx which didn't help.

    I have run
    sudo apt-get purge wine
    sudo apt-get autoremove
    sudo apt-get install wine

    I have also deleted my .wine folder from my home dir
    I am using wine 1.0 (have tried with 1.12 as well) and Ubuntu 8.04

    Yeah I am.

    I got a google result releivent after a bit of playing with my search. Apparently if you delete the divxdecoder.dll from your wow folder it should run, though this will stop it running in windows, I haven't tried with linux as I haven't had time.

    This above step of deleteing divxdecoder.dll doesn't work.
    I think I will try installing the 32 bit version and see what happens.
