Why is ~/.wine not supported?  That is the most appropriate place for an application like this, in a user's home directory.  I will not delete ~/.wine, I have other applications installed into wine which are working and I will not interrupt them for a game like Rift.

I attempted to use any native directx with Rift in the first place but I got the same problem - Rift does not detect directx.  I then tried winetricks after researching for myself on the web how people have gotten Rift working.

I am not using the most current wine.  I am using 1.2.2.  I may upgrade wine.  

I had hoped for some diagnostic suggestions followed up with more targeted advice.
