HowTo / Notes

HOWTO install Lexware

Lexware does currently not run with wine, but with the following instructions you can at least partly install it (using wine >= 1.1.6):

  • Download winetricks (
  • Execute: winetricks msxml3 jet40 mdac28 dotnet20 winxp (This installs MS-XML 3, Jet 4.0, MDAC 2.8, .Net 2.0 and sets windows version to xp)
  • Run the installer. If it complains about missing MDAC, run winetricks mdac28 again!
