I recent have installed Adobe Photoshop CS6 using Wine. If I run in terminal optirun wine "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6\Photoshop.exe" I get the next errors :

vas@LenovoZ580:~$ optirun wine "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CS6\Photoshop.exe"
err:module:attach_process_dlls "msvcp90.dll" failed to initialize, aborting
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Adobe\\Adobe Photoshop CS6\\Photoshop.exe" failed, status c0000005

If I try without optirun the program starts. I use Ubuntu 13.04 and Wine 1.4. Can I start windows programs with Wine using nVidia discrete video card?

I would suggest going to the wineHQ forums and search for msvcp90.dll. Example: 3 of the installers for PS mention that you need to get a copy of msvcp90.dll. To me this has no relation to Ubuntu though ;) – Rinzwind Nov 1 '13 at 13:57
