Additional Comments

I attempted to install this program as part of the cs4 master collection. Installing this program caused the installer itself to completely crash and corrupt my .wine folder. Once I tried a custom install and deselected illustrator (and only illustrator) the cs4 installer stopped crashing.

Due to bug 18070(http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=18070) the installation does not work in the current version of wine(1.1.32), which is pretty sad, since the installed application works well.

There are only three ways make­ it work and neither are really recom­mended:

1. Compiling from git(not for the faint of heart http://www.winehq.org/docs/wineusr-guide/installing-wine-source) 

2. Using an older wine version as described in this test data : http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=14318&iTestingId=39845 .

­3. Moving a windows installation is another way(after the steps below are made, that is) but that's not possible for everyone.


This is a general instruction on what should be sufficient to install and run Illustrator CS 4 under the current wine version. If the application still does not install or work, a bug report should be made at http://bugs.winehq.org detailing any errors. T­his guide applies to installations of the trial version­ and the Master collection:

1. If not done already, download the winetricks script: wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks

2. Install needed redistributables: sh winetricks msxml6 gdiplus gecko vcrun2005 ie6

3. Install MS core fonts(sudo if applicable): sudo apt-get install msttcorefonts

4. Run the installation application(you might need to add a path): LANG=C wine Setup.exe

5. To work around the font layer bug(16499), and on your own risk, download atmlib.dll and copy to /drive_c/windows/system 32 .

6. Run the application.

If you at this point have any problems, the correct (and good, non-evil) thing is to check if you bug is already reported among the linked bugs above. If this is you first bug report, look at some other bugs before you file your to get a feel for it. Also read the checklist shown when adding. And don't be afraid to ask if you are unsure.

Please don't use any other workarounds than those mentioned in this howto before submitting bugs as it defines what currently should suffice for the install. Using other workarounds could hide problems.

Please do NOT submit test results for "portable", cracked or in any other way illegal versions, they will be rejected outright. If you want to help out, please either buy the application or use the demo version.
