What works

I used WINE's Windows 7 emulation with a WINEPREFIX and WINEARCH=win32 and had run winetricks vcrun2017.

Installation with wine msiexec /i ElsterFormularKomplett.msi worked.

Import of an old (in my case, 2015) .elfo - file worked.

Import of a certicate file (.pfx) worked. Upload test ("Senden/Verbindungstest/Test der Datenübermittlung") works.

Viewing help screens works.

Upload of the completed tax data works.

Printout of either in-progress or final info as PDF now also works out of the box (in former years, special regedit was needed - no longer so).

What does not

I have no idea, really, as I have no Windows. - See below for some things that clearly did not work well.


I used WINE's Windows 7 emulation with a WINEPREFIX and WINEARCH=win32 and had run winetricks vcrun2017.

What was not tested

I am not aware of not having used any particular feature.

I did not try to install without previous vcrun2017.

Additional Comments

Adding a second monitor while the programm was already running, when the UI was on the new monitor, it apparently would not receive mouseclicks. When moving the UI over to the previous monitor, it worked as it should. Restarting elster after the second monitor had been connected: The UI now receives moseclicks, but all pop-ups and subwindows open on the other (original) screen.

This is something that does not work. But I cannot verify whether or not it would work on Windows, as I have not Windows license. So I choose to put it under "extra comments", not under "What does not work". For the same reason, I'm not competent to give any rating above "silver". I hope you nevertheless find this helpful.
