HowTo / Notes


by NSLW on (March 26th 2009)


    1. Use recent version of Wine(tested with Wine-1.1.17)

    2. Download winetricks by following command


    3. Install required components by following command

sh winetricks corefonts gdiplus gecko tahoma

    It will take some time because winetricks will download all above components

    4. navigate to your AutoCAD 2005 CD and run

wine setup.exe


    1. Uninstall your Wine

    2. Install Wine-1.1.5

    3. Install required components by following command (yes you have to do it again)

 sh winetricks gecko

    4. Copy "shlwapi.dll" (size 462.5 KB) to your AutoCAD 2005 main directory

    5. run winecfg

    6. go to "Libraries" tab

    7. type shlwapi.dll in "New override for library:" and press "Add"

    8. select "shlwapi" and press edit

    9. set "Load Order" to "Native (Windows)"

    10. close "Wine configuration" window

    11. run AutoCAD 2005 and register it

    12. Uninstall Wine-1.1.5

    13. Install newest available Wine

PlayOnLinux way

You can install and register your AutoCAD 2005 using PlayOnLinux (some kind of gui for Wine). I think it's the easiest method because script will tell you step by step what to do. To do so you'll need:

    1. PlayOnLinux

    2. POL Helper plug-in

Installing in separate WINEPREFIX

To install in separate WINEPREFIX just add

env WINEPREFIX=~/YourOwnPrefixName

before every command you run in terminal.

Do not use Wine 1.1.19 because in this version there is a regression which causes toolbars to be mis-sized.
