I am attempting to install a program for a class using WINE, but during installation, the installer tries to use a file in C:\users\anson\Temp\_is6da.tmp (or with a different string of hex digits at the end), fails to find it, and refuses to install. How can I get this program to install?

The program in question is Vitalsource Bookshelf, and is only available for Windoze 7/8/10, android, iOS, and OSX, and the android version does not have the features that I need for my class. When I attempt to install the program in WINE (set to windows 7 mode), the installer reports:

File 'C:\users\anson\Temp\_is6da.tmp' can not be found.
Make sure the file is on target system or installed already.

Subsequent attempts to install it have reported the same error, with different filenames, such as _is5506.tmp.

How can I resolve this problem?


There is a missing DLL d3d10_1.dll. You can see the error message if you start wine via terminal:

err:module:import_dll Library d3d10_1.dll (which is needed by L"C:\\users\\aboettger\\Temp\\_isf61a.tmp") not found

Therefore search and download the DLL and place the file in ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32

cp d3d10_1.dll ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32

and install via Wine configuration, start Configure Wine.

or use the Windows cmd ;) via

cd ~/Downloads
wine cmd


copy d3d10_1.dll C:\windows\system32
regsvr32 C:\windows\system32\d3d10_1.dll
