winetricks fails when installing vcrun2010

You run
winetricks vcrun2010

But get the message:

Note: command ‘wget -O msxml3.msi -nd -c –read-timeout=300 –retry-connrefused –header Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate’ returned status 8. Aborting.
vcrun2010 failed

The VC2010 runtime redistributable setup needs to load msxml3. winetricks tries to download it from a location in the website where it is no longer available. Instead, search the web for the file “msxml3.msi” and edit winetricks to point to it, eg:

vi winetricks

Find the load_msxml3 function, and replace the download location:


w_download msxml3 d4c2178dfb807e1a0267fce0fd06b8d51106d913


w_download msxml3
