Re: Getting wow launcher to work
The wow launcher should be the game directory and named "World of Warcraft Launcher.exe". If you copied the game straight from a windows install and into a wine prefix you need to run the launcher first so it can download/install/update the "Blizzard Agent/Client" whatever into the wine prefix.
For me the Agent is installed to:
I have had to delete it a few times when some patch messed up and it would not let any Blizzard games update, (WoW, Diablo3 and Starcraft2). Just running the launcher would re-download the Agent and the launcher could run it's updates.
When in doubt 1) rename your old wine prefix (just in case need to roll back), 2) run winecfg to create a new prefix, 3) Link or copy your wow directory to the wine prefix. 4) Run wow launcher to install the Agent and check the game files. 5) Run wow.exe
Note: starting the game from the launcher play button has had problems in the past, so I normally run the game directly i.e. "wine Wow.exe -opengl"
