I recently downloaded the sims 4 from origin on my zorin laptop (using lutris), and when the game enters the ‘finalizing’ state, it eventually comes to this failure: The Error: VC++ runtime redistributable package was not installed successfully. I’d like to know if theres any way to fix this,
You can try this: https://askubuntu.com/questions/852407/wine-visual-c-redistributable-for-visual-studio-2015 but I have not known my Wine games to need any VC or Directx installation. I use PlayOnLinux and if a game doesn’t get installed/work with the 32 bit option, I try 64 bit and usually that does the trick.
The sims 4 isn’t available in the games listed in play on linux and neither is origin…
you can install the windows version of steam within playonlinux then install sims from there or try steam proton within steam on the zorin os itself
