What works

Basic functions work.  Menu pallets are not shaped in squares but are horizontal rectangles (minor bug).

You need to override the following with native DLLs:


What does not

The  application will not start without overriding msvcirt.dll.

Without overriding builtin msvcp60.dll and msvcrt.dll any computation that results in divide by zero will crash wine and Mathcad and on my machine will cause X to go to a black screen.  Clicking the mouse brings back X but wine and mathcad are gone.


What was not tested

programming and the extra stuff like the automation and smart sketch that comes with it.  Not a big deal.

HowTo / Notes


This HOWTO shows how to get Mathcad 2000 Pro running.

It was tested with wine version 0.9.5 on Fedora Core 4 and Ubuntu 5.10.

1.) Install Mathcad from CD.
After the files are copied, in my case I got an error saying the dll files couldn't be registered.
Do NOT install the Internet Explorer as maybe suggested by the installer and do NOT modify
windows files, as maybe suggested.

2.) Modify and run the regall.bat file in the Mathcad directory:
With a texteditor replace all regsvr32 by wine Regsvr32
Make it executeable with the command chmod +x regall.bat
Run it with ./regall.bat
The errormessages can be ignored.

3.) Now you have to install Mathcad again!
Start again the setup.exe from the CD and install it over the directory from the last install in step 1
This time, there should be no error messages about failed registration of dll files.

4.) Get a symbol.ttf file (e.g from a windows or google) and put it into ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/fonts

5.) Get a msvcirt.dll an put it into ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32

6.) Run Mathcad!
If it is complaining about a missing default printer, just close the dialog box by clicking on the X.

Any suggestions / improvements are very welcome!
