I shouldn't be getting that since I have the Windows version set to XP, which doesn't even use mmdevapi, but it's there anyway.
Nope still stuck at cheveron!
(not you just the game). I am using 64 bit wine with:
steve7233@steve7233-HP-Pavilion-dv6-Notebook-PC:~$ WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=$HOME/STO wine $HOME/STO/drive_c/'Program Files'/'Cryptic Studios'/'Star Trek Online'.exe
I have installed vcrun2008 and ie8. Do I need directx or something? I am reading the wine application database that says ie8 and vcrun2008 are all that is needed.
