Installation Fix

The downloader will crash when downloading Blizzard games. In order to fix this, the dbghelp lib needs to be disabled through winecfg.

General Instructions

  • Add the dbghelp lib as override
  • Then set this lib to disable

Detailed Instructions *

  1. Run winecfg. (If you have multiple prefixes, make sure it is the correct prefix) 
  2. In the 'Libraries' tab, type dbghelp into the 'New override for library' box.
  3. Click 'Add', then 'Yes' when it asks if you are sure.
  4. Click on 'dbghelp' in the 'Existing_overrides' list.
  5. Click 'Edit'.
  6. Set to 'disabled'.
  7. Click 'OK', then 'OK'.
  8. Client should now run.

Hearthstone uses the app for installation and software updates.  For more information on using the app with wine, please see this winehq entry.

If your keyboard doesn't work, try ALT+TABing. 

If you get the Loading library WLDAP32.dll error and the launcher can't be installed, install your distro's 32 bit libldap package (exact names of the package needed will vary by distro).

Timezone error: the game checks your timezone that is derived from Linux TZ. But there are a lot more TZs on Linux than on Windows. Fix: changing your TZ (on Linux) to one that exists on Windows will solve.

Hearthstone fails with: Couldn't Write to Registry
by Bob Bane on Monday September 1st 2014, 10:50
Got Wine 1.7.25, and I have dbghelp as 'disabled' and mscvp100 as 'native then built'. Battlenet client runs fine. The Hearthstone app itself starts, attempts to load something and fails with message 'something went wrong'. Upon close and return to Battlenet client it gives error code 3006 with link to:

which give details as:
We couldn't launch %game% because your operating system wouldn't let us write to the registry.
Error: BLZBNTBGS8000000A, BLZBNTBGS80000022

In addition it states the possible solutions as:
1. Create a new administrator account to resolve certain registry issues.
2. Missing or corrupted Windows® system files may cause this error. Use System File Checker to repair and replace system files.
3. If the solutions above do not work, there may be a larger issue with your operating system, specifically with the crypt32.dll file. Contact Microsoft or a certified computer technician for assistance repairing or replacing the file.

Not sure if Wine has the equivalent of "run as administrator" option, but I suspect something like that may help.

Any info on workaround this issue will be appreciated.

Game crashes
by Max Potter on Friday June 20th 2014, 13:33
Running Ubuntu saucy, completely uninstalled Wine, and Hearthstone. Reinstalled Wine1.7, followed the guide. Tried the msvcp100 thing too, but that didn't help.

Game errors on launch ( is fine), dumps error log in a folder and invites me to send it to blizzard. I've tried reading the log but it was completely unintelligible to me.

by Kilian on Monday February 17th 2014, 15:14
Installation worked, but when I click play I get this:

"GL: failed to choose pixel format for dc 18003d
GLContext warn: failed to setup offscreen pixel format: Success.

GLContext: failed to create offsceen context: Success.

Failed to initialize Direct3D 9.
Make sure you have DirectX 9.0c installed, have drivers for your
graphics card and have not disabled 3D acceleration
