KEError 62751?

Hi

I'm trying to run RF-X under Wine.

The install runs fine from the optical disk, but when trying to run the actual program I get an error:
KEError 62751

What does this error mean?

Kind Regars

I suspect you're trying to beat a dead horse. RF-X has such extreme hardware/video requirements that I can't imagine that there's any hope at all of it running in a windows emulator.

Wine Is Not an Emulator

It translates the Win32/64 APIs to Linux APIs and DirectX/3D to OpenGL/Vulkan.

Many 3x A titles run under Wine, like DOOM and Star Wars Battlefront, with very little performance loss.

Also the Unigine 3D engine that RFX uses supports Linux, so if any developers are listening,
a Linux port properly wouldn't be that difficult

My terminology may be wrong, but translating Win32/64 API's to Linux API's sounds a lot like emulation to me. RF-X is a Windows program. I strongly suspect that RF's tech support will say that they don't support Linux. Here's a quote about Wine 4.0 that I found via Google:
Quote:
Before you get too excited, however, you should know that Wine is hardly flawless. Some apps and games will work fine, while others may be slow or buggy. There can be a lot of trial and error involved.
I suspect that RF-X is one of the programs that's buggy.

You are correct that not all apps work perfectly, but Wine evolves all the time because users try different apps and report back their findings which the developers then incorporate into the code.

This is what I' trying to do with RF-X, which is why it would be useful to know what the error means.

I know very well that Linux isn't supported but that shouldn't prevent anyone from answering my question.

[edit]
Also the emulator part was a joke. Wine originally stood for Wine Is Not an Emulator but of course its a grey area.
The point is that many of the most graphical/hardware demanding 3D games do run fine in Wine.

AFAIK, only RF's tech support can give you the actual meaning of that error message.
