What works

Standard installation (requires the workarounds below)

What does not

  • Installation does not work on a 64-bit wineprefix.
  • On a 32-bit wineprefix set to Windows 7, the installer complains about a missing update and stops the installation.
  • Visual Studio 2015 does not run.


  • Install .NET Framework 4.6, which is required for Visual Studio 2015. For this, a 32-bit Wineprefix was required.

    winetricks dotnet46

  • Setting the Wineprefix to Windows 10 allowed the installer to progress.

    winetricks win10

What was not tested

  • Custom installation.

HowTo / Notes

Winbind component

Winbind component

Make sure you installed 'winbind' component with your distribution package manager.

This is needed for the -Zi option of the compiler, and other mechanisms that handle 'PDB' (Program Data Base) files.


$ aptitude install winbind


$ sudo dnf install samba-winbind*.x86_64 samba-winbind*.i686

/home/yourlogin/.wine is not owned by you / (Permission denied)

Never run wine as root (su, sudo)! Wine doesn't require to be run as root!

You will screw your WINEPREFIX and possibly other things up. If you have run Wine as root you need to:

$ sudo rm -rf ~/.wine

and then run winecfg to set Wine folder structure back up. If you used winetricks script as root you might also need to:

$ sudo rm -rf ~/.cache/winetricks/

Again: Just run wine as regular user and all should be fine.
