(See my sigfile for my computer and LM version, although have LM13-MATE-x64)
Have WINE 1.4, WineTricks, QTWine and PlayonLinux installed and configured; none of these allow me to install Command and Conquer: The First Decade. Since the game is reluctant (at best) to run in Win7, (EA has decided (short-sightedly, IMO) to not update the installer and launcher for Vista and above) I have been trying to get it running in Linux Mint, so far to no avail. While the installer does come up (via PlayonLinux and (I think) QTWine) the game will not install.
There is a discussion on PlayonLinux's forum about C&C:TFD, but no solutions even proposed as yet, so I'm finding myself locked out of one of my favorite RTS franchises altogether, since I cannot afford C&C3 or C&C4, which are both coded for Vista and above.
Anyone have any ideas on how to get the installer to complete its job, so I can test the games within the bundle?
I would really hate to leave this one on my "obsolete and cannot be run" shelf, especially when I'm running games that actually predate the first C&C with no problem! (BTW: Don't ask me to install OpenRA; I've got it and like it... to a point. But I want to play Generals/Generals Zero Hour as well, especially.
