Running Roblox on ReactOS

Post by frn2000 » Thu Dec 07, 2017 9:54 pm

Has anyone been able to run Roblox on ReactOS?

I'm able to install Roblox. Wine can handle the installation, but it doesn't call dependencies. I found some instructions at http://roblox.wikia.com/wiki/ROBLOX_on_Linux. I know ReactOS is not Linux, but Wine should behave the same way. In any case, the latter site suggests installing Winetricks (https://wiki.winehq.org/Winetricks) via `wget`. I used the Win32 version of `wget` (http://gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/packages/wget.htm), but when I tried to run the Windows port (`sed.exe`) I got an error indicating that the `MSVCP60.DLL` file was missing. I ran into errors when trying to install Visual C++ Redistributable package from Microsoft. I had to download the DLL by itself.

I got stuck at this point. Please help -- thanks.

You have not written a Tutorial. You're asking a question. That is why for instance Support would have been so much better...

ReactOS is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature-complete and is recommended only for evaluation and testing purposes.

he is installing the windows version of roblox

MSVCP60.DLL is part of the VisualCPlusPlus6 runtime http://download.Microsoft.com/download/ ... up_deu.exe on windows

download the installer to a folder on you C drive i have named it ReactOS open a command prompt and navigate to that folder and enter the following commands
VC6RedistSetup_deu.exe /c /q /t:C:\ReactOS\VisualCPlusPlus6
cd C:\ReactOS\VisualCPlusPlus6
vcredist.exe /c /q /t:C:\ReactOS\VisualCPlusPlus6
mount the drive that contains reactos then open the roblox folder that has the .exe and copy the run time *.dll files in to it

then post any errors you get

edit
is is the Roblox Studio Launcher Beta you are trying to get running ??
