What works

##### Installing #####

  • Backup your current .wine directory before start installing!!
  • Run winetricks to install corefonts, fontfix, msxml3, msxml6, dotnet2, dotnet3, dmusic, dplay, quartz, vc2005, vc2008, quicktime72 or quicktime76, from winetricks GUI or from terminal with the command: ("winetricks corefonts fontfix msxml3 msxml6 dotnet2 dotnet3 dmusic dplay quartz vc2005 vc2008 quicktime76")
  • Now run Sony Vegas installer and stop it when showing the request of installation/downloading framework and runtimes
  • NOT close the installer!!
  • Now go to drive_c (or your wine dir installation) > Windows > Temp > SonyInstall_1 and launch the msi Sony Vegas installer "vegas90.msi" with the short command: "wine start vegas90.msi"
