I ran the official installer on Windows. I switched to Mint and I can easily open the LCore.exe with wine:
wine LCore.exe It opens the software, but it's obviously just saying 'No devices detected'. I have a Logitech mouse (G700) and a Headset (G35).
Is it possible to install Windows drivers on Linux Mint, and if yes, how? There are some other exe files in the driver folder which I tried to run, but they only gave error message which I didn't understand, and also some .inf, .sys and lot of .dll files.
Here are all the files which were installed.
wine DifxInstaller.exe (the file is located in drivers/installers), which gave this output:
fixme:heap:HeapSetInformation 0x230000 0 0x22fd50 4 DifxInstaller.exe <install|uninstall> <inf> [npnp=hardwareid] [flag flag ..] Supported Flags: install: DRIVER_PACKAGE_FORCE DRIVER_PACKAGE_LEGACY_MODE DRIVER_PACKAGE_ONLY_IF_DEVICE_PRESENT DRIVER_PACKAGE_REPAIR DRIVER_PACKAGE_SILENT uninstall: DRIVER_PACKAGE_DELETE_FILES DRIVER_PACKAGE_FORCE DRIVER_PACKAGE_SILENT
After that, I ran
wine DifxInstaller.exe install DRIVER_PACKAGE_ONLY_IF_DEVICE_PRESENT:
fixme:heap:HeapSetInformation 0x230000 0 0x22fd50 4 fixme:difxapi:DriverPackageInstallA ("DRIVER_PACKAGE_ONLY_IF_DEVICE_PRESENT", 0, (nil), 0x140027550) stub CDifxInstaller::DoInstall() returned 0 Inf=DRIVER_PACKAGE_ONLY_IF_DEVICE_PRESENT Flags=0x0 CDifxInstaller::DoInstall(): reenumerating... fixme:setupapi:CM_Locate_DevNodeA 0x22fa80 (null) 0x00000000: stub
Sadly, it didn't help, would probably be too easy. LCore.exe is still saying that no devices were found.
