Better error handling of 64bit program in 32bit Bottle
When you run a 64bit Windows program in a 32bit bottle you get an ominous looking error dialog (small square with incomplete windows bar (probably Error something but you can only see "E...) and the dialog only shows a square and the "ok" button.
Hitting ok, will show the command result that the exe returned 1 and
Command error text:
winewrapper.exe:error: cannot start L"Z:\\Volumes\\Macintosh HD\\Users\\some64bit.EXE" (error 11)

On a 32bit Windows Explorer will actually speculate that it is a 64bit program in the error message.
Could this be adapted for Crossover? (or Wine? but it has been ages since I dabbled in compiling Wine and my experiences with the Wine bugtracker doesn't make me want to go there again)
Or is it even feasible for Crossover/Wine to see the 64bit reason for this error?
It sounds feasible to me, so I added it to our internal bug tracker. We hadn't put much thought into this case. Thank you for bringing it up.
Thanks! It was quite confusing when a program didn't run and the error message didn't make much sense. I think I redownloaded it three times to make sure that the download wasn't corrupt :)
