No longer works because of XP bottle
Posted 2017-11-05 19:12
Blizzard has killed XP support and Crossover will only support WOW installed to an XP bottle. If you pick Win 7 for the bottle the install wont run to let you access battle net, so dose any one know the right recipe for a W7 bottle that will work?

Same problem.
I've been trying to switch an existing bottle/install to win7, but it still thinks it's xp.

I made a fresh wine prefix to test things.  Things work quite nicely for all games except Overwatch (its just slow due to lacking Dx12 features) and Destiny 2 (just broken).  The main things I found were to use a 64-Bit Win10 bottle/prefix and for each game in it make the necessary modifications.  For WoW, none should be necessary.
