Additional Comments

Used standard installer from adobe website. Installer seems to crash, but disregard that as shockwave was installed. Direct X rendering works, but is laggy. OpenGL is faster. Used Default Wine Settings on Wine 1.3 beta Only installed Firefox 3.6.

HowTo / Notes


(updated 2011-6-23)

Make sure your Windows version is set to XP in winecfg (that is the default setting).  

Shockwave 11.6 works in Wine with Firefox 3.6.3 or older.  Newer versions are affected by bug 17273; there is a workaround mentioned in that bug report, but I have not tested it.

N­either the full nor slim exe Shockwave installers work in current Wine, and clicking a download installer on a Shockwave website spawns a (seemingly) endless list of crypt32 fixme messages. The msi file downloaded by winetricks, however, does work.

Winetricks 20110429 currently reports a sha1sum error and does not complete the install (a bug in winetricks), but the file that it downloads can be installed manually with the command

msiexec /i $HOME/.cache/winetricks/shockwave/sw_lic_full_installer.msi

After installing, go to the Shockwave test page at, right-click on the test image, select Properties, and uncheck "Allow backward compatibility."­
