Fix for breakage on upgrade

If you find that Neverwinter Nights 2 works fine before upgrading CrossOver, but after the upgrade fails with an error claiming to be unable to detect your graphics card, this should help.

On upgrade, CrossOver changes the behavior of dxdiagn.dll. Initially, at the time of installation, it is set to "native", but after the upgrade it changes to "native, builtin". This was discovered by Stefan Dösinger.

To fix this, open up winecfg. This may be found under "Manage Bottles" --> "Control Panel" tab.
From there click on the Libraries tab, and find in the list "dxdiagn". Click "edit" and select "native".

It is also probably a good idea to change the behavior of "devenum" as well since this, too, seems to change on upgrade.
Please Wait...
