I've downloaded  It doesn't run because it's using an API `PathCchCanonicalizeEx()` that's not provided in wine.

Z:\home\rmills\temp\python-3>wine: Call from 0x7b43cfbc to unimplemented function api-ms-win-core-path-l1-1-0.dll.PathCchCanonicalizeEx, aborting
wine: Unimplemented function api-ms-win-core-path-l1-1-0.dll.PathCchCanonicalizeEx called at address 0x7bc50023:0x7b43cfbc (thread 0034), starting debugger...
Unhandled exception: unimplemented function api-ms-win-core-path-l1-1-0.dll.PathCchCanonicalizeEx called in 32-bit code (0x7b43cfbc).

I've reported this to the wine team:

Hi Robin, it looks like you are trying to run Python for Windows on Linux using Wine but that it's not supported by Wine.

Why would this be a bug in the CPython interpreter thought? It looks like there is nothing we can do here to fix this right?

Thanks for such a rapid response.  Much appreciated.

I think it's a bug in wine, so I've also reported it to them.  And you both know that you both have it on your radar!

I believe the Win32/API PathCchCanonicalizeEx() is quite new, and that's why it's not in wine-core-magic.  However, python could consider reverting to your earlier code.  And another possibility is to test that PathCchCanonicalizeEx != NULL before calling it.  If it is NULL, then use the "old" code.

Let's see what the wine men (and ladies) say!

Good News.  The wine people say "Fixed in wine 4.0".  So, a happy result.

We can close this.

Thanks, I think you can close it by setting the Status field to "closed".
