What works

Install newest winetricks from source:

Ubuntu 18.04 bionic:

Install wine-devel 3.14 from wineHQ:

wget -qO- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-add-repository 'deb bionic main'
sudo apt-get install wine-devel

symlink wine-devel to wine:

sudo ln -s /opt/wine-devel/bin/* /usr/local/bin/

Install newest winetricks from github:

chmod +x winetricks
sudo mv -v winetricks /usr/local/bin

Create 32bit prefix:

WINEPREFIX=/home/rik/wine-logos/ WINEARCH=win32 wineboot

Install dotnet472, d3dx9_43, and corefonts in quiet mode:

WINEPREFIX=/home/rik/wine-logos/ winetricks -q dotnet472 d3dx9_43 corefonts

Install Logos7:

  • Note: "bootstrap" installer downloaded from Logos website won't work.  Need to use "full" installer taken from existing Windows installation.  Can install in VirtualBox or other if needed to obtain the installer.
  • Windows installer located at: C:\Users\\AppData\Logos\Install\Installers\Logos-x86.exe  Copy entire "Install" folder to Linux machine.

WINEPREFIX=/home/rik/wine-logos/ msiexec /i //Logos/Install/Installers/Logos-x86.msi

Run Logos7:

  • Login works
  • After a while the application will crash referencing these errors: System.AccessViolationException: Attempted to read or write protected memory.

Logos7 installer needed from previous Windows install: c:\users\rik\Local Settings\Application Data\Logos5\Data\

What does not

See above: Logos crashes after a few seconds referencing a memory error:

System.AccessViolationException: Attempted to read or write protected memory.


See above: "Full" installer taken from Windows installation location.  Bootstrap installer fails to download "full" installer.

What was not tested
