What was not tested
This test was performed on a Debian-based GNU/Linux distro. Linux version 3.2.21 Requires MFC42.DLL and msvcp60.dll.
|Operating system||Test date||Wine version||Installs?||Runs?||Used|
|Current||Linux Mint 12 "Lisa"||Jun 29 2012||1.4||Yes||Yes||Platinum||Joseph Lee|
|Show||Fedora 14||Aug 16 2011||1.3.24||Yes||Yes||Gold||Joseph Lee|
GNU/Linux distribution: Mint 12
To run TD Ameritrade's StrategyDesk program on a Mint 12 system using WINE 1.4, just copy the two missing, required dll files (MFC42.DLL and msvcp60.dll) into the drive_c/windows/system/ directory.
GNU/Linux distribution: Fedora 14
To run TD Ameritrade's StrategyDesk program on my Fedora 14 system using WINE 1.3.24, I followed the instructions on the Trading With Linux blog. I've reproduced the steps below. With StrategyDesk versions 3.4 and above, the steps in the blog were insufficient, so I ran the wine command in a terminal to view the output messages.
Newer versions of StrategyDesk require msvcp60.dll, so I used the Winetricks program to download and install the file for me. All the steps I took to get StragegyDesk running are detailed below.
sudo yum install wine
chmod +x winetricks
