Failed to start PhotoStage with error "Could not initialize video output" when using WINE
By default, WINE is able to determine the amount of video memory on the graphics card. However, there are instances where it would not be able to, mostly when using proprietary drivers.
When such instance occurs, you can use the following options to fix it:
Option 1: Using Winetricks
Winetricks is a helper script for configuring WINE, as well as other things. To download winetricks, see the “Getting winetricks” section HERE.

Step 1: Choose “Select the default wineprefix” and press OK.
Step 2: Choose “Change settings” and press OK.
Step 3: Choose the appropriate “videomemorysize” option depending on your video card and press OK. If you do not know your video card memory, we advise to choose “videomemorysize=512”.
Step 4: Close winetricks by repeatedly pressing the close button until it exits.
