    RED ALERT 2


    I was trying to install Red Alert 2 through wine but it does not seem to work. When I execute the Setup the Red Alert 2 install screen comes with a message saying that I need a newer version of COMCTL32.DLL and if I don't want it I should execute another exe file. I pressed cancel and then I got another message saying I need a newer version of OLEAUT32.DLL aswell if not then blah blah.

    Anyway, I copied those two dlls from my window partition and put them in wine's window folder.

    Again when I tried running Setup I got COULD NOT INITIALIZE DirectX.

    I'm using wine 20050211.

    Thanks for looking!

    Ahh

    DirectX isnt in WINE, AFAIK, it is in Cedega, so you can download a version of that for free I think, btw, Red alert 2 rocks :P

    Well I heard something about there being "some" DirectX support in wine. And I have heard many guys have successfully run RA2 through wine.

    I'll keep checking google. Maybe I'll find something.

    Thanks for your reply.
