Winecfg 6.15 will not launch after latest update

After latest updates included wine (wine-6.15), can’t run winecfg on empty profile.

winecfg
002c:fixme:actctx:parse_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly L"Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls" (6.0.0.0)
wine: could not load kernel32.dll, status c0000135

Most likely you have to run first
winetricks d3dx10 d3dx9_36 vcrun2005 corefonts
Depending if you use or not some wineprefix … you have to point to it.

Much easier to deal with all this by using PlayOnLinux

winetricks package is not installed.

winetricks d3dx10 d3dx9_36 vcrun2005 corefonts
bash: winetricks: command not found

Shouldn’t it be a dependency?

winetricks depends on wine but wine does not depend on winetricks … You can install it tho:
pamac install winetricks

Still doesn’t work:

sudo pamac install winetricks ; echo ok ; winetricks d3dx10 d3dx9_36 vcrun2005 corefonts ; echo ok ; winecfg

I’m facing the same issue. Could you fix it?

winecfg is working with wine-6.16 so try it.
