Running an x86 program that needs DirectX support on Raspberry Pi

Thu Jan 11, 2018 10:45 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm currently doing a project in which I'm trying to run the software used for the Samsung Gear 360 on the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. The goal is to use that software to start a live stream with the Gear 360.
The software is called 'Gear 360 Action Director' and so it's a x86 based program.

I've done some research on running x86 programs on a Pi and found Exagear. So I installed this software and I also installed Wine.
After I had done this I was able to run exe files. So I tried to install the program. And it did open the installer and was actually installing the program but it ran into an error. Which said that Direct X 10 or above is needed to install the program.

After some more research, I installed Winetricks and installed the DLL file for Direct X 10.
But now I'm still getting that same error.
I don't know what I can do about this or if there is any way to get Direct X 10 or above installed.

Any thoughts?

Thank you in advance!

My thoughts are that it is vanishingly likely to ever work. And if it did it would be intolerably slow.

You could try enabling the Pi accelerated graphics.

You could try asking the creators of Exagear as I presume you have paid them for it.

Thank you for your answer. I've just tried this but I'm still getting that same error.
Is there any way that there is a package available to install Direct X or above?
Because I've tried the web installer but that just didn't work at all.
