It can be found here: http://www.pcwintech.com/simple-shutdown-timer >>Using WINECFG, set overrides for the dlls "ole32.dll" and "oleaut32.dll" to "Native, then Builtin." by Edwin Smulders on Tuesday January 12th 2016, 8:59 >>For the latest version, I needed this in addition to what is mentioned above: >> >>winetricks jet40 >>winetricks mdac28 by Richard Kunkel (contd.) >>Install Aurora as per the standard instructions found on the Aurora forum. >>Run Aurora by running the file "Aurora.exe"
