What works

The application installs fine by running the following commands  (installing in it's own win32 prefix):

env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.maxcut WINEARCH=win32 wineboot
env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.maxcut WINEARCH=win32 winetricks vcrun2013 vcrun2015 corefonts
env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.maxcut WINEARCH=win32 winetricks --unattended dotnet452
env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.maxcut WINEARCH=win32 winetricks settings win7
env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.maxcut WINEARCH=win32 wine start maxcutsetup.exe

What does not

If I try to print a report, maxcut tries to open the file in a pdf reader define by default in the wine mimetype extension files. It wasn't working so I had to change the default pdf reader wine would use.

I don't know tough if it happend because I am using i3wm but I don't think so.

I've also tried to import a csv (generated in a maxcut from a windows machine) file in the sheet material window and it gave me an error but I don't know if that doesn't happen in windows too.


It was not possible to install the application with mono so it was needed to install .NET by winetricks to be able to complete the instalation without errors:

env WINEPREFIX=$HOME/.maxcut WINEARCH=win32 winetricks --unattended dotnet452

To be able to successfully print reports I had to use the following workaround:

1) Edit the wine pdf extension in your .local folder as this:

vim ~/.local/share/applications/wine-extension-pdf.desktop

2) Change the exec line from this:

Exec=env WINEPREFIX="/home/youruser/.maxcut" wine start /ProgIDOpen pdffile %f

to this:

Exec=zathura %f

Obs.: I'm using zathura as a pdf reader. You can use any pdf reader you want.

What was not tested

I've not tried to print labels

Additional Comments

I've not had the same problems as Dominik with the windows 2006 and dotnet. And I haven't had the same black-screen problems that I had installing it in wine 4.0.1. So I tend to think that the black-screen issue has something to do with some kind of bug in older versions of wine.
