What works

Application execution, basic functions.

What does not

Uses Caphyon's Advanced Installer which fails due to bug #34989.

Fails to load due to bug #39792.  Workaround is to install 32-bit SHCore.dll and its myriad of dependencies which vary depending on its version.

HowTo / Notes


Create a 32-bit Wine directory.  Note that $WINEPREFIX must specify an absolute directory path and can't use a variable:

env WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=(your $HOME)/.wine-pcbtoolkit wineboot

The installer, Caphyon's Advanced Installer, fails to work due to bug #34989.  Until that is fixed you need to obtain the application executable via other means.  The installer may work with the proposed patch in the bug report but that means you will need to compile Wine yourself.

The application requires some registry entries to be set.  These are normally set during installation.  The following registry values are from the 6.86 version:


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Saturn PCB Design, Inc.]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Saturn PCB Design, Inc.\PCB Toolkit]

Save these in a text file with a *.reg filename extension or just extract them from a Windows installation using its regedit.  Then load them with Wine's regedit:

env WINEPREFIX=(your $HOME)/.wine-pcbtoolkit regedit (*.reg filename)

Due to bug #39792 the application depends on 32-bit SHCore.dll which is not available from winetricks.   You will have to obtain it elsewhere but it has many dependencies which vary according to its version.  On a 64-bit Windows 8.1 system SHCore.dll (and its dependencies) can be found in C:\Windows\SysWOW64.  Put it $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/windows/system32 and try running the app.  The Wine messages will indicate what DLLs are still needed.  If you see a message about a DLL having the wrong architecture then you have a 64-bit DLL which won't work.  Currently these DLLs are unknown to Wine so setting overrides with winecfg is not necessary.

Use Wine from the command line to execute it or winefile if you're lazy:

env WINEPREFIX=(your $HOME)/.wine-pcbtoolkit wine (path to PCB Toolkit executable)
