    Issues when trying to install Starcraft 2

    I'm using Linux Mint 17.1 Rebecca. My wine version is 1.7.38.

    I've already got Battlenet app installed and I've got Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm working through it. When I try to install Stacraft 2 from the Battlenet app or the Starcraft-II-Setup-enGB.exe, I always get this error message:

    ERROR: The file "Blizzard Entertainment\StarCraft II\msvcr71.dll" could not be found.

    I've tried to install the game through POL and Wine, but in the case of POL, the already-installed Battlenet app seems to be a problem since it tries to install it. And if I choose not to install it, it doesn't install the game neither. I also tried to install the game through my DVD but it didn't start patching correctly when I linked the game to the Battlenet app. I tried the library override-thing for that .dll but it didn't seem to work. I got that .dll file manually but I'm wondering would it work with that if i would put it in the right directory. I have no understanding how those libraries work.

    So what is the proper way to install it through the dvd or how can I fix the error with msvcr71.dll? I think I'm doing something very wrong since SCII is marked as Platinum in WineHQ.
