Comment 1 Michael Cronenworth 2015-11-11 16:04:03 EST
Please try a fresh wine prefix.

WINEPREFIX=~/winetest winecfg
Comment 2 Vratislav Podzimek 2015-11-12 04:28:35 EST

> Please try a fresh wine prefix.
> WINEPREFIX=~/winetest winecfg

That works as expected. Is there a way to identify what's wrong in the default prefix or at least just remove the config without losing data from there? Maybe something got mangled somehow during the update? An interesting fact is that when I copied my whole /home/user folder (including ~/.wine) to a fresh F23 installation, everything works fine there.

Comment 3 Michael Cronenworth 2015-11-15 20:58:41 EST
You can try debugging with "winegdb" or delete $WINEPREFIX/.update-timestamp to attempt to regenerate the wine prefix. 

If it is working on newer versions of wine I'm going to close this. F21 is going EOL very soon and I'm not pushing any updates for it.
Comment 4 Fedora End Of Life 2015-12-02 10:51:44 EST
Fedora 21 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-12-01. Fedora 21 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
