Additional Comments

Requires a native shlwapi.dll override in order for the authorization to work. Installation and unauthorized usage (for 30 days) works without the shlwapi.dll override, but for the registration page to generate content, a native shlwapi is necessary. One caveat is that whenever a command or menu option generates a popup menu (a dialog box, in GUI programming terms) and the user exits that dialog box, focus is not automatically reverted to the main AutoCAD window, so one must manually revert focus.

HowTo / Notes

HOWTO

­by NSLW on (March 26th 2009)

Installing

    1. Use recent version of Wine(tested with Wine-1.1.17)

    2. Download winetricks by following command

 wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks

    3. Install required components by following command

sh winetricks corefonts gdiplus gecko tahoma

    It will take some time because winetricks will download all above components

    4. navigate to your AutoCAD 2004 CD and run

wine setup.exe

Registering

    1. Uninstall your Wine

    2. Install Wine-1.1.5

    3. Install required components by following command (yes you have to do it again)

 sh winetricks gecko

    4. Copy "shlwapi.dll" (size 462.5 KB) to your AutoCAD 2004 main directory

    5. run winecfg

    6. go to "Libraries" tab

    7. type shlwapi.dll in "New override for library:" and press "Add"

    8. select "shlwapi" and press edit

    9. set "Load Order" to "Native (Windows)"

    10. close "Wine configuration" window

    11. run AutoCAD 2004 and register it

    12. Uninstall Wine-1.1.5

    13. Install newest available Wine

PlayOnLinux way

You can install and register your AutoCAD 2004 using PlayOnLinux (some kind of gui for Wine). I think it's the easiest method because script will tell you step by step what to do. To do so you'll need:

    1. PlayOnLinux

    2. POL Helper plug-in

WARNING
Do not use Wine 1.1.19 because in this version there is a regression which causes toolbars to be mis-sized.
