What works

Install fails due to VC++ and DirectX install error, but has workaround (see below).

What does not

After that, the game pages fault on read access to 0 in 64-bit code in pvz.main_win64_retail+0x8ea06e


To fix the error related to VC++ and DirectX install, do the following inside the game directory (something like "C:/YOURORIGINDIRECTORY/Plants vs Zombies Garden Warfare/"):

1. Move all __Installer/directx/redist/*.cab to somewhere else like a new OFF directory.

2. Rename __Installer/vc/vc2012Update3/redist/vcredist_x64.exe to something like vcredist_x64.exe.OFF, then symlink the original file like this:

ln -s /bin/true __Installer/vc/vc2012Update3/redist/vcredist_x64.exe

What was not tested

Game page faults after Play is pressed, so nothing beyond that is tested.

Hardware tested


  • GPU: Nvidia
  • Driver: proprietary

Additional Comments

This is a 64-bit game so you need 64-bit wine. You may need to run 32-bit wine to start Origin.exe, so both wine and wine64 needs to exist.
