Wechat - winetricks riched20 error

Wish to run WECHAT (windows version) on MX.
After a lot of tries, finally it is worked, except that the text typed in the message typing area is not visible.

Some forums suggested : winetricks riched20
but that gave the following error :
Downloading https://web.archive.org/web/http://down ... SP4_EN.EXE failed

Is there any solution to the problem ?

https://www.winehq.org/ would be the best place to start, to see if individual Windows applications and/or versions work or not.
Please read How To Ask For Help and How to Break Your System.
MX User Manual: hold down ALT and press F1. Further information may be found in the MX Wiki.

Occasionally MS changes the URLs where libraries can be found. If you installed winetricks from the repos, that version may need to be updated to get the new location of riched20. Directions to get the very latest winetricks here:
https://github.com/Winetricks/winetricks
MSI 970A-G43 MB, AMD FX-6300 (six core), 16GB RAM, GeForce 730, Samsung 850 EVO 250GB SSD, Seagate Barracuda XT 3TB
