unimplemented function msvcp90.dll in wine

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)

Open winecfg

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.
