HowTo / Notes

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.
