Additional Comments

Audio accelleration in winecfg must be set from 'Full' to 'Emulation', otherwise you will not have in-game audio. With Full audio accelleration selected, the following error message is posted: fixme:dsalsa:IDsDriverBufferImpl_SetVolumePan (0x177cc0,0x177be0): stub On newer machines the game runs too fast (even on windows). A patch is available at Megaupload ( called Commandos Ultimate that resolves this issue

Movies and Sound

As others have pointed out you can get movies working by installing some DLL's.
To fix movies: winetricks amstream quartz

I needed only these two for movies.

The sound is a little crackly which I managed to fix installing dsound.

To fix sound: winetricks dsound

Enjoy :)

Commandos Complete version does not install, error is cannot find "setup-bin.1"

Please provide command which you type, and exact error message.

Which version of the Wine are you using and on which Linux Distribution?
by whocares on Sunday May 29th 2016, 14:03
Sorry my mistake. It's wine 1.8.2 on Devuan Jessie and the exact problem is a dialogue appears asking for "the next disk" (which it shouldn't be asking normally) and on specifying the right location it complains: The file "setup-1.bin" could not be located in Z:\media\cdrom\beyond_t (which is where the installer is located). Setting up the CD-ROM drive with winecfg doesn't help.

Command used is wine /media/cdrom/beyind_e/setup.exe (also typo'd this directory above, this is the correct one).
