do this by setting the following Registry key to "0":

To allow EE to find the CD you should open winecfg and add a drive mapping, setting it to CDROM.

Empire Earth 1 success
by Kevin DeFord on Saturday November 2nd 2013, 17:47
I was able to get Empire Earth Gold Edition to work finally for single player games. The biggest issue is don't install any patches and don't install Art of Conquest.

I used:

Wine 1.6
d3dx9
dinput8
vcrun6

Then just did a normal install. I have not gotten it to work properly outside of an emulation mode - seems to have trouble with the screen resolution when run outside emulation. Mouse speed works fine in this mode - game is definitely playable.

If the patch 1.00 - 1.04 patch is installed, the mouse stops working. If the expansion is installed, Empire Earth still works fine, but the expansion does not work.

Anyone had any success getting the expansion to work?
