HowTo / Notes


Make sure you operate on a clean 32-bit WINEPREFIX (~/.wine)!

Installation by using 'winetricks' script

Winetricks will take care of all needed installation prerequisites and work around some problems.

$ wget

­$ bash winetricks ie7

­$ bash winetricks dotnet20 dotnet40 msxml3

Always use the latest 'winetricks' script from the URL above! Several Linux distributions package outdated 'winetricks' versions, don't use them.
