View Full Version : [SOLVED] Wine/Steam/HL2 Registry in use problem !!

September 30th, 2007, 04:03 PM
I'm using Wine 09.33 on Xubuntu 7.04. System specs are: AMD Athlon64 3200+, 1 GB RAM, GeForce 8600GT w/newest nVidia drivers...

Wine works great with all of my apps except one.

I can't get around that Registry in use error when I try to play STEAM games... I've hit every forum, The Wine AppDB and googled my behind off and tried everything I could find...upgraded to 09.45(which broke everything), wineboot, wineprefixcreate, killall wineserver, delete client registry blob, open & close STEAM, game cache integrity.... rebooting....

Only HL2 works.. Episode 1, Lost Coast, CS:S and HL: Source peter out... Anyone have some info on how to fix this? I'm quickly going bald!!! :confused:

Thanks in advance.....

Just re run it until it works

Tried this ... after a few attempts STEAM crashes...

validate game cache

Tried this too as stated above... :)

Ive also tried purging Wine and my .wine dir and re-installing STEAM and my HL2 games... ](*,)

This was remedied by enabling Fiesty Backports in Software Sources.. Upgrading Wine from 0.9.39 to 0.9.41... Problems disappeared!!! =D>
