What works

Not much, installation fails

What does not

Installation. Most components appear to install correctly, but when I run the game it keeps trying to install the visual C++ 2008 redistributable. The installation window then closes, and the game does not start. No visible errors

Workarounds

What was not tested

Playing the game.

Hardware tested

Graphics:

  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

Steam install stuck at "Must install steam service for this version of windows". Switching to wine to XP mode got around this, and allowed most of the components to install normally.

HowTo / Notes

How to start the game without the launcher

The borderlands lancher is not working with wine. But to run the game, it is this application that steam starts first. To work around the problem, do the following:

Create a file named steam_appid.txt with the contents "49520" (without quotes).

Put this files into the Steam/steamapps/common/Borderlands 2/Binaries/Win32 folder

 Then, every time you runs the game, first runs steam, and only when steam is running, start the game by running Borderlands2.exe (in the Steam/steamapps/common/Borderlands 2/Binaries/Win32 folder)
