Builtin MFC.

The game still crashes.

Additional Comments

Sadly, there is very little to find on this issue. I have tried the CChromaEditor-fix. Adding the wine-mono and wine-gecko packages also made no difference. I'm running this all in a 64-bit Wineprefix, which works for the vast majority of people so that shouldn't be a problem. I also encountered this problem with stable (3.0.1) a few months back, so I'm clueless on how to proceed. Might my total failure be of comfort to those that encounter the same problem.

Admin note: DOOM(2016) requires a 64-bit WINEPREFIX just to install, as the game binaries, Vulkan and OpenGL renderers, are 64-bit only.
