Everything works well. Including printing (on my HP Laserjet) which never worked years ago when I set this up.
On previous version of Wine I copied mspaint.exe into the system32 folder and ran it out of there. On Linux Mint 17 (64bit) that didn't work.
To get Paint working I did the following:
- Copy mfc42u.dll from a XP installation to Wine's C:/windows/system folder.
- Copy gdiplus.dll to Wine's C:/windows/system32 folder. Note: With Wine 1.6 the dll was already there, in that case skip this step.
- Copy mspaint.exe to a folder in the Program Files. You should be able to run it out of there and it works great!
