CD Key
by ZleNaes on Thursday June 28th 2018, 9:16
Hello, I've tried to install Age of Empires 3 with Steam and started with a 32bit WinXP Prefix. I've installed everything which was needed
(winetricks --force corefonts dsound l3codecx quartz, winetricks -q mfc42 ,winetricks d3dx9, winetricks dotnet20), but the CD Key input doesnt work properly. I can't write all 25 numbers but just 24 or less.
Im using Ubuntu 16.04. Any Idea how to solve this problem?

corefonts should do the trick, it worked with wine-3.19
