What works


What does not

Some small things : moving a palette makes it black, sometimes it stays that way after dragging is over. Hiding and showing it back fixes the problem.

What was not tested

A lot.

Additional Comments

This has been tested on Wine 1.5.3, Wine 1.5.8 and Wine 1.5.11 and works #1 with those wine versions on Fedora 17 x64

1. Save this as, change paths according to your setup/needs :
export WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wb/fl
rm -R ~/.wb/fl
mkdir ~/.wb/fl
winetricks msxml3 vcrun2008 vcrun2010
wine ~/.wb/fli/Set-up.exe
winetricks atmlib gdiplus allfonts

wine ~/.wb/fl/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Adobe/Adobe\ Flash\ CS6/Flash.exe

2. Download Adobe Flash CS6 demo. Save files in the fli folder mentionned in the script.

3. Install winetricks

4. Run the script you created at step 1.

5. When asked if you want to install trial version or enter a serial, choose enter a serial and enter any serial since the installer thinks i'm offline. Click connect later when it ask you to connect to the internet. The installer starts to install and crashes with a big "Install failed" message. This is OK, it is still installing in the background. Do not close the installation failed window until you think it has finished installing Flash CS6. VoilĂ  ! Your Flash CS6 Pro is installed and should appear on your screen. If not run this in gnome-terminal :
wine ~/.wb/fl/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Adobe/Adobe\ Flash\ CS6/Flash.exe

I forgot to mention that this method works nicely but requires you to reinstall every 7 days (just re-run the script every 7 days) since I cannot activate the product since it cannot see my internet connection !

All these bugs and yet apparently not a single bug report.
