Leisure Suit Larry 7: Love for Sail!

Leisure Suit Larry 7: Love for Sail! is a computer game, part of the Leisure Suit Larry Love for Sail! Leisure Suit Larry, whose "actual" name is Larry Laffer, is a balding, dorky, double entendre speaking, leisure suit-wearing (but still somewhat lovable) loser in his 40s who spends much of his life trying (usually unsuccessfully) to seduce attractive women. It featured more fleshed-out, cartoon style graphics and full voice acting, was the sixth installment in the LSL series.

What works

Install works from "setup.exe" and game starts fine from "autoplay.exe" or its location on the hard drive. Game also seems to play fine.

What does not

Installation now doesn't give option to install from "autoplay.exe" file on the cd. This last worked on Wine 0.9.3 and earlier.

Installation also doesn't create any icons.


What was not tested

Didn't go through entire game, but gameplay looks good.

HowTo / Notes


To Install:
*Failure to set Wine Windows version to Win 98 or 95 may result in a "not enough space on drive" error.

  1. Set Wine Windows version to Win 3.1, Win 95, or Win 98
  2. Go to the CDROM directory containing the Leisure Suit Larry 7 Love For Sail! disk.
  3. Run setup.exe using Wine (or autoplay.exe).
  4. Select "Install"
  5. Choose "No" for the system test.
  6. Choose "Yes" to install with a failed/no system test
  7. Choose "Yes" to verify the installation path
  8. Click "OK" for full installation (small install has not been tested-but feel free to try if you like)
  9. Installation will begin.
  10. Creation of menu items & icons will fail. Click "OK" to these errors
  11. A dialog will appear asking if you want to register.
  12. After registration (or not) installation is finished

To Run:

  1. Go to the CDROM directory containing the Leisure Suit Larry 7 Love For Sail! disk.
  2. Run autoplay.exe using Wine.
  3. Select "Run" to run the game.

Failure to Run game from Autoplay.exe on the CD:

I've seen this in previous versions of Wine where "Run" can not be selected after install in "autoplay.exe".  It looks like it came back somewhere around 1.1.2* and will likely disappear & reappear again, so I'll leave the note here.

  1. Try running sierw5.exe from the CD
  2. If that failed (or crashed), try running sierw5.exe from the hard drive.
    It should be installed at 
  3. Good luck. Hope it worked.


* Thanks to Nick Boughton for bringing this to my attention.
