Additional Comments

The installer will not produce a working installation! To work around this either perform the installation in both WINE and real Windows and then copy over the files from your Windows installation OR upgrade to the latest version of WINE 1.7 (I used 1.7.28), install it there and downgrade back to WINE 1.6! To prevent errors about database initialization on startup run `winetricks --no-isolate mdac28 jet40` within your WINEPREFIX. This can be done after installation as well! Unfortunately I could get this to work on WINE 1.6 anymore with the latest `winetricks` version (20140302) so make sure you run this command under WINE 1.7 as well! Startup will hang while loading the plugin LVInstruments. This can be fixed by opening the directory "${WINEPREFIX:-~/.wine}/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/National Instruments/Circuit Design Suite 10.0" and renaming the directory "lvinstruments" to something else. You WILL loose ALL functionality provided by this LVInstruments plugin by doing this! You will receive "Runtime error '9': Subscript out of range" on startup then the updater will idle around for a while before the program continues to start up. Both of these issues can be fixed by opening the directory "${WINEPREFIX:-~/.wine}/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/National Instruments/Shared/Circuit Design Suite" and renaming the renaming the directory "Support and Upgrade Utility" to something else. Since this product is EOL, this cannot be considered a functionality loss... SCRIPT THAT INSTALLS MultiSim 10.0 CORRECTLY 1. Requires that you run a Debian based system 2. Requires that you have added the WINE PPA (package repository) to your system 3. Requires that your WINEPREFIX is already set (ignore if you do not use more than one prefix) 4. Requires that you have a terminal window open in the directory with the MultiSim 10.0 installation files 5. Might break on future updates of WINE 1.7 === CUT === sudo apt-get install -y wine1.7 # Install WINE 1.7 winetricks --no-isolate mdac28 jet40 # Prevent database errors wine setup.exe # Install MultiSim 10.0 sudo apt-get install -y wine1.6 # Downgrade back to WINE 1.6 mv "${WINEPREFIX:-~/.wine}/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/National Instruments/Circuit Design Suite 10.0/lvinstruments" "${WINEPREFIX:-~/.wine}/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/National Instruments/Circuit Design Suite 10.0/lvinstruments.bak" mv "${WINEPREFIX:-~/.wine}/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/National Instruments/Shared/Circuit Design Suite/Support and Upgrade Utility" "${WINEPREFIX:-~/.wine}/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/National Instruments/Shared/Circuit Design Suite/Support and Upgrade Utility.bak"
