What works

Pretty much everything works, there is nothing I haven't been able to do, no crash or bug with display

For interested people, here is how to use it on Ubuntu :

Download Flash Pro CS6 Portable :

1) Install libldap and mpg123

sudo apt-get install libldap-2.4-2:i386

sudo apt-get install mpg123:i386

The i386 is important since you will use 32bit version

2) Create a new Wine folder, we make sure there is nothing else that could interact with Flash Pro

mkdir -p /home/your user name/Documents/Flash-cs6

Now change the WINEPREFIX for this new folder and use 32bit :

export WINEPREFIX=/home/your user name/Documents/Flash-cs6 

export WINEARCH=win32

Now go in your new folder, you can use cd $WINEPREFIX

3) Setting up Wine

Init fresh Wine install on your new folder :

wine wineboot

Now install all the libs you need to run flash :

winetricks msxml3 vcrun2008 vcrun2010 atmlib gdiplus allfonts

You might encounter issue with checksum for PowerPointViewer.exe, use this command to get the sha256 checksum of PowerPointViewer.exe :

sha256sum /home/your user name/.cache/winetricks/PowerPointViewer/PowerPointViewer.exe

This should return something like this : e17cb384eeac4caf08a4f5d4bceb9697fff83fa942d2a3d9ad0294a9b1774390

Now we are going to get the checksum of PowerPointViewer from winetricks script :

grep PowerPointViewer.exe /usr/bin/winetricks

It should show you something like this :

file1="PowerPointViewer.exe" \
    w_download_to PowerPointViewer "" 249473568eba7a1e4f95498acba594e0f42e6581add4dead70c1dfb908a09423

Now we replace the checksum in winetricks by the checksum of the downloaded file using this command :

sudo sed -i -e s/249473568eba7a1e4f95498acba594e0f42e6581add4dead70c1dfb908a09423/e17cb384eeac4caf08a4f5d4bceb9697fff83fa942d2a3d9ad0294a9b1774390/g /usr/bin/winetricks

Replace the checksum with the one you got from the previous commands

Now you can use try again to install the libs with the command below

Now launch FlashPortable.exe with Wine and it should work, have fun !

What does not

Nothing for the moment


If you can't install Flash Pro CS6, use a portable version instead

What was not tested

ActionScript 3 wasn't tested since we use AS2 for our project, but it should works
