Hello,

 

I'm trying to use wine version 2.4-staging to play Victoria 2 - however - I keep on getting the "Please wait while virtual drive is being created error" - with the two windows only showing up as small lines of pixels. I am no expert in code by any means I have been a mac user for 3 years and I really only do work on my macbook with the occasional video game.

Macbook info also included in link above.

This issue is fixed from Wine 2.22 and next.

Because you use Wine version '2.4-staging'.

Right, so isn't 2.4-staging after 2.22? You said issue is fixed from Wine 2.22 and next. [Btw its "and after", not "and next" :) ]

Ahhh I see what you mean, 2.4 is before 2.22 - I'll see if it works.

1. Try a newer Wine version (ie: v3.0.3).

2. Then if no success, read: http://wiki.playonlinux.com/index.php/Manual_Installations
