After the video, the music stop, and the game crash! I have eliminated the file time, and all load of directory "cache"! but not run! :( I do use a particular version of Wine?!

Looks like Victoria 2 needs these packages/components:

  • d3dx9_36
  • vcrun2005
  • dotnet30
  • dotnet30sp1

Also you should create a shortcut to v2game.exe

Run the game from this shortcut after launching Steam.

There is a note that msvcrt2005sp1 needs to be installed, but I've never installed this library for any game.  You will have to find it online on Microsfts downloads.
