I've gotten to the point in the installer where it tries to get Microsoft visual c++ 2012 redistributable. I have downloaded the package from Microsoft and separately installed it in the playonlinux vm. The package shows up in the add/remove programs list. But, the installer can't seem to find it.

What the error looks like

Hi, sorry about the broken link. I have updated the "About screenshot" in my main post. I have added the two components you recommended. Looking at the application setup logs, it seems like the installer is crashing and printing this:


SysUtil::getMediaTypeWithWMI: Could not connect to WMI namespace. Error code: -21472173942019/9/18:22:54:29 joe joe-VirtualBox Download Play VCREDIST2012X86UPD4{F9CF3D54-3C8A-44D3-9730-099AC2DC2448}/VCREDIST2012X86UPD4.tar.lzma2?dummy=0


Here is a link to the whole log file:

I think that the hope to make this software run on POL/POM is very low. Even the pros of Wine at Codeweaver have quite bad reports.
