Have Googled for this but couldn't find a way to re-install riched20.dll I installed to install a Windows application (I don't remember the application) some days ago.

Is there anyway(command-line or via the GUI) to remove and/or re-install dll's installed in winetricks?


  • Ubuntu 12.10

  • winetrics 20120912

  • Do you want to uninstall the DLL or install the DLL? I'm sure wine doesn't include DLL's. – Braiam Oct 18 '13 at 14:26
  • I want to uninstall the riched20 DLL. You can install DLL's from winetricks. – jobin Oct 19 '13 at 5:00
  • I want to ask this, too. It seems that the winetricks only provides the option to remove all *.dll, but not some particular ones. – Eric Apr 21 '14 at 13:49

I did the following in winetricks when I loaded a DLL that broke a game:

  1. Select the default wine prefix
  2. Click Change Settings
  3. Check the box alldlls=default then click OK
  4. Reinstall DLLs as necessary

This got me back up and running.

  • Sorry but I don's have access to the system i was facing this problem on, I'll try if i replicate this issue. Thanks. – jobin Aug 12 '14 at 15:43

Just delete from wine folder the riched20.dll then add again via winetricks.

rm ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/riched20.dll

  • Wrong. There are packets installed under /usr/lib/ and other places as well. Removing that dll under wineprefix just disables the dll. – chefarov Jun 30 '18 at 13:21

I found a way to at least disable a DLL. Open winecfg and go to Libraries. The DLLs installed by winetricks seem to have an asterisk (*) before their name, find the DLL you want to remove and change it to 'builtin' or remove it from the list.
