HOWTO (With/Without winetricks)

Tested with Wine 0.9.48. Open a terminal type in:

  • winetricks wmp10
  • This doesn't override quartz or devenum; you might still want to do that.

    Alternately, you can try a manual procedure:

    • Place jscript.dll in Wine's windows/system32 directory (usually ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32)
    • Run regsvr32 jscript.dll
    • In the system32 directory, delete urlmon.dll and replace it with this one
    • Run winecfg and set the Windows version to XP. Add an application wmplayer.exe and set it to use Windows XP as well. Go to the libraries tab and add an override for urlmon
    • Run the installer. Once it is complete you should run winecfg and set the default windows version back to 2000, keeping the override for wmplayer
    • To get the visualization/progress bar working, place devenum.dll and quartz.dll in Wine's windows/system32 directory, and add dll overrides for them under 'wmplayer.exe' ­

    WMP 10 Installation Procedure
    You NEED to install through winetricks unless you are ABSOLUTELY sure you know what you are doing. Otherwise it does not run. Once installed, you need to install some sort of codec pack so you can listen to music and watch videos. The winetricks install already provides an installer for the 7+ codec package.

    Not happy...

    I just tried this with an e-book downloaded from the
    local library. Copy protected .wma file.
    WMP10 just says "Aquiring license..." when you try to play it :-(

    RE: Can't play online (mms) streams. 0.9.37

    Just some stuff off the top of my head:

    1) You realize that ies4linux doesn't install to ~/.wine, right? It installs to ~/.ies4linux/ie6. If you want any other installs to go to the same directory tree, do something like:

    rm -rf ~/.wine (or mv ~/.wine ~/.wine.sav)
    ln -s ~/.ies4linux/ie6 ~/.wine

    then install wmp.

    2) ies4linux leaves out a step that is important to wmp - it doesn't tell the IE that the Internet Connection Wizard has been run. Symptom - the Media Guide in wmp complains it can't connect to the internet. If you followed the reference in my WMP10 install notes to the WMP9 install notes, you may have seen this already: Throw the following keys into a file, say icw.reg, and run it through regedit - 'regedit icw.reg':


    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Connection Wizard]

    I use the plugin in IE all the time -,,, Also the Media Guide works for me, assuming you actually get a link that doesn't bring up an IE browser window. Try this link in WMP:

    If these don't work for you, see my installation method in the above posts.
