What works

Once installed via work around the Java software I was testing (FirstRate 5) worked perfectly.

Tested both the 32 bit and 64 bit installer from

What does not

Just running the installer will result in no window appearing. In the list of processes you will see two wine jre-8u241-windows-x64" processes which you will need to forcibly terminate. If you try to run again without terminating you will get an error that a installer is already running.



Set the winecfg Windows version to XP and run the installer with "/s" switch for silent install:

wine jre-8u241-windows-x64.exe /s

You will see a bunch of console output but eventually the process will finish.

What was not tested

Other applications then FirstRate 5.
