run the installer in various ways
What does not
Programm crashes with "Essential Components are missing"
even even following workaround did change it:
1. Step: If your error message is "Essential components needed to start
GOG Galaxy are missing. Please reinstall the application" then just
follow Step 2 and 3.
2. Step: Press "WindowsButton + R" and enter "cmd".
3. Step: Enter "sc delete GalaxyClientService" in the console and press "Enter"
Maybe there is no sc comand in wine build in as I have never heard of it before.
- Using the extra symlink
- install vcredist 2012 and/or 2015
install corefonts and/or eufonts
What was not tested
installing and playing any game
using a WINEARCH=win32 prefix
Tested in a WINARCH=win64 prefix as the game I was trying it install under native wine is only 64 bit
