City of Heroes install issue

I've been trying to get City of heroes to work on Ubuntu with crossover games and this has me stumped. I'm new to linux, so it's probably an obvious issue.

I have downloaded the City of heroes updater file and tried installing it via the crossover games menu, but i get the error:
"Error opening file CohUpdater.tmp
You may be out of disk space or you may be trying to install to a location where you have insufficient permissions."
I have tried running the installer through the command line, and using sudo, but it doesn't output any errors. It isn't a space issue, I have 800gb+, and I have permissions to access the bottle.

Does anyone have any idea what is going wrong?


I seem to have got it working. I changed the wine config settings for the bottle to win 98, and then ran cohupdater.exe from the drive_c/program files folder. It is currently busy downloading the rest of the game, so I'll update this when it's done.

CoX has a native Mac client, you don't need to try to run the Windows version at all.

Actually, I believe this thread is requesting help for a Linux setup.
