I used Play on Linux and Starcraft II as a test to see if I can play my library of games on Linux... I'm having a bunch of problems.. just when it looks like it I'll work I get another runtime C library error, and it stops...

Is there something I can just press and something fix this for me?

I launch Starcraft II from the /PlayOnLinux's virtual drives/SC2_WoL/drive_c/Program Files directory... the first thing that happens is the searching for patch dialogue comes up after awhile I get a Star craft II Launcher dialogue .. "Failed to run a required program Agent). Wat one minute and try again... At the bottom it says "Error code: BLZPTS00007" – KevinB Oct 6 '12 at 20:46
