Additional Comments

1. x64 platform should create a wine32 prefix to run adobe reader. WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine32 WINEARCH='win32' wine 'wineboot' 2. Winetricks as others pointed out: WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine32 winetricks atmlib WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine32 winetricks riched20 WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine32 winetricks wsh57 WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine32 winetricks mspacha WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.wine32 winetricks mspatcha 3. Download Adobe Reader 11.0.8 for Windows XP and install, set update checking mode to manual. 4. In the first run, set Protected mode to be always disabled.
