Just a quick note for those having trouble starting WoW, admins, move this where you see fit, but we don't really have a "games" forum.

The latest patch from Blizzard changes permissions on the ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/World\ of\ Warcraft/ folder when you try to run Launcher.exe. There are no error messages and it just appears to "not work" on subsequent attempts to start.

The solution is to chmod a+rwx (or something else to the effect) the above mentioned folder as root, then STOP using Launcher.exe and run the program from Wow.exe in future.

Hopefully this helps someone

Download and click in order wine install :

- Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) 32 bits version
- Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64) 64 bits version

in this website: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/c … layLang=en

If 64 bits version goes wrong, so try with the 32 bits version.

Good game & have fun.

At the moment WINE does not support 64bit windows binaries. Also you should use winetricks to install needed VCppR library version.
