Install the following way in a terminal, use the wineprefix command for installation in a clean environment You need to have (the latest) winetricks installed cd ~/ && wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks && chmod +x winetricks env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ap5x sh winetricks corefonts mdac28 jet40 msxml4 directx9 ie6 wininet dotnet20 env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ap5x wine '/path/to/albumplayer_setup5x.exe' (install AlbumPlayer V5.x) env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ap5x wine regedit Go to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\http\shell\open\command" Edit and change it to C:\windows\system32\winebrowser.exe -nohome "%1" (Set native firefox as the default browser) env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-ap5x wine "C:\Program Files\AlbumPlayer\AlbumPlayer.exe"
A webpage request from within Albumplayer does open up the wine browser, but not the native Linux browser.
Open regeditor with
"wine regedit" in terminal, (use the env Wineprefix if applied earlier in the Additional Comments)
Go to "HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\http\shell\open\command"
Edit and change it to C:\windows\system32\winebrowser.exe -nohome "%1"
It now launches the native Linux browser.
