VC80 Runtime Manifest
Neverwinter Nights 2 was apparently compiled with Visual Studio 2005 which uses Manifest files for the C runtime library on Windows XP. This apparently does not work yet; however, the files do appear to be installed in drive_c/windows/winsxs/x86_(PLATFORM_DEPENDANT_NAME).
1. Launch Neverwinter Nights 2 (either from the GUI, or using) "~/cxoffice/bin/wine --cx-app NWN2Launcher.exe"
2. The Launcher will start, click PLAY.
3. The loading screen will appear, and the application will terminate.
And the log contains:
"err:module:import_dll Library MSVCR80.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\Program Files\\Atari\\Neverwinter Nights 2\\nwn2.exe") not found
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\Program Files\\Atari\\Neverwinter Nights 2\\nwn2.exe" failed, status c0000135"
Copying the DLLs from drive_c/windows/winsxs/x86_* to the Neverwinter Nights 2 directory (drive_c/Program Files/Atari/Neverwinter Nights2) should work around this.
