HowTo / Notes

Create a overwrite for imm32.dll

I start with a new prefix you may adapt it to your situation.

$WINEPREFIX will always be your path for you Planetside2 wine folder. The first step will create that folder.

example with step 1:
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine_planetside wineboot

  1. run: WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=$WINEPREFIX wineboot
  2. Acquire a native Win XP 32bit imm32.dll. You'll find it in C:\windows\system32 or in Service Pack 3 [see PS2 Forums for hints where to get one]
  3. copy the imm32.dll to $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/windows/system32
  4. run: WINEPREFIX=$WINEPREFIX winecfg
  5. in the winecfg window go to the "Libraries" Tab.
  6. There is a small input filed enter "imm32" (without quotes) and click add. In the list below there should now be a entry "imm32 (native,builtin)".
  7. Select the new entry and click "Edit". In the window select "Native (Windows)". Close with OK.
  8. Click OK to save and finish. You're done, you now can continue to install the other needed dlls and Planetside.

Troubles:

When you use a wrong or faulty imm32.dll, every program (including winecfg) will crash, giving you many error messages. In such a case you can revert the override by editing "$WINEPREFIX/user.reg". Use a text editor, not a word processor. Search for imm32, find the line that says "imm32"="native" or similar. Delete this line. Save the file and test if you can run winecfg now.

64bit:

If you happen to use a 64bit wineprefix you need to put the imm32.dll into "$WINEPREFIX/drive_c/windows/syswow64" and set the override in winecfg (step 7 above) to "Native then Builtin". If you put it into system32, 64bit applications will not work correctly.
