So I downloaded the installer from:

I just installed PlayOnLinux today, and when I open it, it says:

One or more programs are missing. Please install them and run the script again.
Program: glxinfo, package: mesa-utils

However, the program works fine when I click OK. I found Starcraft 2 on the list of games, downloaded the installer without a problem. When I try installing the game, it crashes once it hits 2% with this error:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Runtime Error!

Program: C:\\users\\Vincent...

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.


Could someone help me out please?

Not sure if you have found this yet, but you can try the following (it fixed the error I was getting). I did not try Starcraft 2 yet, but hopefully it will help.

Install mesa-utils:

sudo apt-get install mesa-utils

Let me know how it goes.
