HowTo / Notes

How to install and run MS Visio 2000

Make sure winbind is installed. For Ubuntu you could type command:

  sudo apt-get install winbind

Run Visio installer with 32 prefix:

  WINEPREFIX="$HOME/visio2010-32" WINEARCH=win32 wine visiosingleimage.exe

Install Riched20 dll to fix dialog displaying issue (for example in Format -> Line or Save As -> PNG):

  WINEPREFIX="$HOME/visio2010-32" WINEARCH=win32 winetricks riched20

Finally run Visio:

  WINEPREFIX="$HOME/visio2010-32" WINEARCH=win32 wine $HOME/prefix32/drive_c/Program\ Files/Microsoft\ Office/Office14/VISIO.EXE

Visio 2010 wont install on Mac, says: "you must have administrative permissions"

Always gives: "you must have administrative permissions to install or uninstall this product".

Installed wine via pkg installer.

Very sad, no way to run visio 2010 in wine.

Does not work!

Somehow none of the shown information is enough for me to get this running. I am using a fresh 32bit 1.7.12 with PlayOnLinux (also tried 1.6.2 and 1.5.4). The installer always errors out with something like "the installer has found an error"

Please try with vanilla Wine ( not PlayOnLinux or another variant ) and file a bug for stuff which doesn't work.
