What works

installation and simple use. This is an initial report at this stage - hope to add more detail in next few weeks of use in Architecture coursework.

What does not

The installation of QuickTime proved problematic - therefore some functionality has been lost (see previous reports) The icons on the sidebar were rendered in greytone outline only. A subsequent upgrade to Vectorworks 11.5 made the installation unusable.


What was not tested

advanced use, long term use, printing, exporting, output

Hardware tested

Additional Comments

At this point compilation of wine on Fedora 9 still had some problems for me (see what other people have written in the forums)I used the livna rpm instead. And I had not fully sorted out problems with vendor-supplied Nvidia drivers interacting with the Xorg 1.49 which shipped with Fedora 9 - 3d rendering was not working for me.

HowTo / Notes

Starting off with a fresh .wine may help:
$ rm -rf ~/.wine

Now run:
$ winecfg

This will create your .wine directory, and open the configuration tool. In here, change the Windows Version to Windows XP by using the drop down box.

Download the following files from
msvcp60.dll, msvcrt.dll and mfc40.dll

Download the files, unzip the .dll files from the downloaded archives, and copy them to your .wine/drive_c/windows/system32/, eg:
$ cp msvcp60.dll ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32/

On the Libraries tab of winecfg, set the three .dll files as native. This example is for msvcp60.dll:
Type msvcp60 into the text box, then click Add.
Select msvcp60 and click Edit, and select Native (Windows). Repeat this for all three .dll files.

Click Apply then OK.

This step is only needed for the serial key entry, if you already put it in in setup you won't need to do it:
On the Graphics tab of winecfg, select Emulation a virtual desktop, and enter a size for instance 1024x768. Now click Apply then OK.

You should now be able to start Vectorworks in the usual Wine way:
$ wine .wine/drive_c/path/to/vectorworks/vectorworks.exe

You can turn off the Virtual Desktop again once the serial key has been entered.
