[FIXED] DotA2 on Steam from Ubuntu via Wine: Can't launch the game since last update (WAS WORKING BEFORE)
Hi,

I am using wine (installed from playonlinux and its ppa on ubuntu 12.04 LTS).
I did it since DotA2 is not availaible on Steam on linux.
I run DotA2 with the launching option "-nod3d9ex" (supose to diseable some directX things that wine can't handle or something like that).
It is working well, I did about fifty hours of games.

Today, after 1 or 2 game, i entered a game where nobody was able to buy item, someone deconnected and says he updated and should works. I deconnect then, and can see steam downloading updates.
I relaunch DotA2 when it is done and i have as usual the steam popup that says: "Preparation au lancement de DotA 2", but then I have a windows popup with the message:
"Failed to load the launcher DLL:
Message 0x%1 not found in file %2" with a title of "Launcher Error" and a "OK" button.

I tryed to verify the data of the game in the property tab local, with succes, but I keep having this issue. I even tryed to reinstall DotA2, not working too.

Any help welcomed !
