Additional Comments

I got in to work on Arch Linux x64, although it took me a few hours to figure out how to do it. Hope someone finds this helpful. ChemDraw 14.0 only works as a Win32 program, which is apparently related to availability of .NET 4.0 in Wine. Also, I had winetricks, wine_gecko, and wine-mono installed, and I don't know whether the latter two are strictly necessary. This is how I got ChemDraw to work: 1) Open installation .exe file with Archive Manager, navigate to /Windows/Cambridgesoft/ChemOffice/, extract installation .msi file 2) Install gdiplus, vcrun2013, and dotnet40 through winetricks: WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 WINEARCH=win32 winetricks gdiplus WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 WINEARCH=win32 winetricks vcrun2013 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 WINEARCH=win32 winetricks dotnet40 3) Install ChemDraw: WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 WINEARCH=win32 msiexec -i CambridgeSoft_ChemDraw_Std_14.0.msi
