I have been through these forums and the forums on Winehq to try and fix this problem.  Starting the game using POL i have everything working so far... except the ingame browser.  It says there is a serious error...

Funny thing is, if i go to the directory where eve is installed, right click the launcher program and open with wine that way everything works to include the In Game Browser!  So I believe I am missing something in the install of the game in POL i just dont know what.  I installed vcrun2005, 2008, 2010... corefonts, etc.  Still missing something.  

I am running Linux Mint 16 KDE, i have installed latest Wine and POL from PPA's.

Thank you

What version of Wine are you using?
You might have to install Internet Explorer 8 to use game browser functionality.
I have noticed in the past some game clients require IE8:
Arc, League of Legends, Origin, Uplay

But the newer versions of Wine have really improved quartz and now most of these games don't require IE8 anymore.
