What does not
the archive is unpacked in C: / Temp, but installer crash
What was not tested
1. Install Wine.
Do not install Wine-Mono at startup.
2. Install cabextract for winetricks:
sudo apt-get install cabextract
3. Install winetricks:
sudo apt install winetricks sudo apt update
run with the command:
4. Close winetricks
5. Now we need to create a 32-bit prefix and a separate folder for this:
WINEPREFIX=~/.corel WINEARCH=win32 wineboot
This will create a /.corel folder with the win32 prefix.
6. Now you need to tell winetricks that all components need to be installed in this folder. To do this, run the command:
WINEPREFIX=~/.corel WINEARCH=win32 winetricks
7. Now we can install programs there. This can be done in the winetricks itself or through the terminal.
I will say in advance that different programs require their own version of Windows. In this case, we will switch between WinXP and Win7.
This can be done in two ways:
1) Directly select the version you want:
WINEPREFIX=~/.corel WINEARCH=win32 winetricks win7 WINEPREFIX=~/.corel WINEARCH=win32 winetricks winxp
8. Installing programs through the terminal:
WINEPREFIX=~/.corel WINEARCH=win32 winetricks ie8 msxml3 msxml4 msxml6
WINEPREFIX=~/.corel WINEARCH=win32 winetricks vcrun2012 vcrun2013 vcrun2019 ie8 msxml3 msxml4 msxml6 ole32 oleaut32 dotnet40 dotnet46
I chose these Microsoft .NET versions, you can choose integer.
9. Now we need to update the GAC for NET:
WINEPREFIX=~/.corel wine "c:\\windows\\Microsoft.NET\\Framework\\v4.0.30319\\ngen.exe" update
This article helped me with the installation.
If the programs are being downloaded, then you can download them from the Internet and place them in the appropriate folders. The directory is located in the Home section.
10. Install Fonts:
WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 WINEARCH=win32 winetricks corefonts tahoma calibri
Run in Windows 7 compatibility mode.
WINEPREFIX=~/.corel WINEARCH=win32 winetricks win7
Move the installer to .corel/drive_c and rename it to Installer.exe
Go to .corel/drive_c and run the installer
WINEPREFIX=~/.corel WINEARCH=win32 wine Installer.exe
The archive will start unpacking, but the installer will crash.
The program will unpack files to Temp:
If you want to install directly, then do not close it. Copy the CORELDRAW folder to drive_c. After that you can close the window, otherwise it will delete all temporary files.
Go to .corel/drive_c/Temp/CORELDRAW/x86, run SETUP.exe
The program will also fail to install. Installation requires Internet Explore 11.
I also tried to run the already installed program. Two errors got out:
1. The UI Language registration list is invalid.
2. Unable to load VGCore.dll. Error Code: 1114
