I am having trouble installing dotnet, and even after I force wine to do so,  I get this sort of error:

Code
00d4:err:explorer:make_explorer_window Failed to create PIDL for L"Z:\\path\\to\\whereYouWantYourWineprefix\\". 
(redacted, of course)

I am using pop-os 21.10 and wine 7.12, which I have already used to run Fusion360.

Heres what I have tried:
1. Create 32 bit wineprefix
   1.1 Leave all settings the same in the GUI that I get, this means a windows 7 spoof
2. Run the winetricks install command as shown above
   2.1 This fails, saying that dotnet48 has been broken since wine 5.18.
   2.2 Force the install anyway.
      2.2.1 It mentioned mono not being installed, but no effect was noticed after uninstalling mono
   2.3 Install works
3. Run the run command as provided and see the error.

I am not a WINE expert, but here are some links that I found that may be of use:

Eureka! I found it! The problem for me was actually in launching musicbee, i instead ran
Code
WINEPREFIX=path/to/whereYouWantYourWineprefix/ wine MusicBee.exe
and that seems to have worked
