I am using Wine 1.2.1 and WoW 4.0.1 installed fine with the downloader, and the launcher runs without a hitch (although the "play" button won't appear once in a while). But once the Launcher program attempts to run the wow.exe, I get nothing. No game, no error message.

Thank you for all of the information, but this is the main clue.  You 
need to re-initialize your Wine directory structure.

Can you either move aside or delete your $HOME/.wine directory and then 
install WoW again?
