The test results for this version are very old, and as such they may not represent the current state of Wine. Please consider submitting a new test report.
Selected Test Results (selected in 'Test Results' table below)
Downloading the installer.
Downloading the game.
What does not
Installing the game.
What was not tested
The actual game (it does not come out until May 15th, 2012) as it will not even install correctly.
The installer can be run using instructions here:
but the game still will not install until the game is actually released.
I did have to upgrade my ubuntu's version of Wine to the package "wine1.3" following the instructions on this site.
I get a
fixme:msg:pack_message msg 14 (WM_ERASEBKGND) not supported yet
when trying to install.
This is JUST the downloader, it is NOT the installer. The installer fails as reported by http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=30198 (bug 30198).
Important info for test results posters
Thank you very much for wishing to spend some time on improving AppDB.
I have to warn you that general AppDB policies forbid (a) accepting test results for patched Wine versions and (b) forbid accepting results obtained from PoL-driven Wine installations, only "vanilla" unpatched Wine or Wine that had came by default with your distro are considered to be valid. I'm really sorry for that, but it is the way it currently is.
For more details feel free to read recent (as of 16th of May, 2012) discussion on wine-devel mailing list.
Aside from the requirements above your test results should comply with some simple rules to be accepted:
Please, test an application under fresh clean wineprefix;
Include exact specs of the computer you had tested an app on (CPU, GPU, amount of RAM and VRAM) in the "Extra Comments" section of the report;
Specify versions of essential software components, most notably: is your system 32bit or 64bit, what is the version of the GPU display driver you use and what is the version of the OS kernel;
Include detailed information on the native dll overrides you had to use in order to get the game working. If you had installed dlls yourself - include complete information on the sources of dlls and the exact steps you took to install them.
Thank you in advance!

If you like me have trouble with the downloader crashing on Ubuntu 11.10 and 12.04, update wine to 1.4 (at least) and when the Downloader starts go to preferences and disable P2P downloading and background throttling.
Platinum rating? Are you serious?!

I've got a question to an app maintainer concerning the rating that had been awarded to D3 pre-order download app - how could it be "Platinum" as there are obvious problems running it with vanilla (non-patched) Wine? IMO rating should be "bronze" at best (or - more likely - garbage) until the moment Wine would incorporate changes that would fix bugs #27657, #28898 and #30198. For people who are not capable of messing with Wine source patching and compiling it is essentially impossible to successfully execute D3 pre-order downloader and got it to complete its job.
