What does not

Drive was not detected at first


For me it only works with wine-staging 4.17 up to 4.20. This is due to a wine bug. Other than that the installation procedure was as follows.

  1. WINEARCH=win32 winetricks -q dotnet20 dotnet40
  2. WINEARCH=win32 wine eac-1.4.exe
  3. cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Exact\ Audio\ Copy/ && regsvr32 sql*
  4. WINEARCH=win32 wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Exact\ Audio\ Copy/eac.exe
  5. EAC-Options (F9) -> Interface -> Installed external ASPI interface
  6. Exit
  7. WINEARCH=win32 wine ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Exact\ Audio\ Copy/eac.exe
