The best thing about Ubuntu is that you can do the right thing – and accept the regular updates … and suddenly find your system no longer works.
WINE improved itself a couple of days ago – and Kindle for PC no longer worked.
The problem seemed to be an unimplemented function msvcp90.dll.
The solution seemed to be given at WineHQ as a fix for a game that also needs the dll.
Down under xlive.dll FIX the following advice helped:
What to do:
Download msvcp90.dll from – HERE
Extract the DLL file and copy them into your C:/windows/system32 folder of wine (overwriting any file that may already be there)
Set msvcp90.dll to native
Also set msvcr90.dll to builtin
I also cleaned all the ‘manifest’ files out of
which don’t seem to add much. Advice Here
Simply removing the *.maifest files didn’t get Kindle running as was recommended.
