HowTo / Notes


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

Prerequisite installation by using 'winetricks' script

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

$ wget

­$ bash winetricks dotnet4­5 corefonts

Set the Windows version to Windows 8.1 using 'winecfg' before running the installer.

Winbind component

Make sure you installed 'winbind' component with your distribution package manager.

This is needed for the -Zi option of the compiler, and other mechanisms that handle 'PDB' (Program Data Base) files.

$ aptitude install winbind (Debian)

$ sudo yum install samba-winbind (Fedora)

/home/yourlogin/.wine is not owned by you / (Permission denied)

Never run wine as root (su, sudo)! Wine doesn't require to be run as root!

You will screw your WINEPREFIX and possibly other things up. If you have run Wine as root you need to:

$ sudo rm -rf ~/.wine

and then run winecfg to set Wine folder structure back up. If you used winetricks script as root you might also need to:

$ sudo rm -rf ~/.cache/winetricks/

Again: Just run wine as regular user and all should be fine.
