HowTo / Notes

installation notes running on Wine circa 0.9.20 (earlier 0.9.x probalaby OK)
The following assumes a virgin wine configuration as created with winecfg 0.9.20 . This means no library over-rides and default win2k behaviour. I have prefered to use ~/.wine/c instead of ~/.wine/drive_c since it saves typing and scans easier when comparing to a true windows system. If you choose the drive_c paradigm simply adjust instructions below appropriately.

Two common issues: "cant find EULA" during installation ; cant find dlls on startup.

1/ mount your CD in the normal way or mount an ISO image using loopback. See you distribution doc if you're confused , that is not a wine isssue and not dealt with in detail here.

mount /dev/cdrom /mnt/cdrom
mount -o loop /mnt/cdrom

use winecfg to create a device for that location if not already available or do directly:

cd ~/.wine/dosdevices
ln -s /mnt/cdrom h:

you should now be able to run the installer directly:

wine h:setup

2/ dlls are installed in two directories during installation, but paths are not being set for the application. Solution , copy all to same directory and run the program directly from that location.

assuming wine was configured under ~/.wine/c and using * to prevent huge filenames with spaces and quotes everywhere, the following should copy the files where they will be found

cp ~/.wine/c/Prog*/Common*/Autodesk*/* ~/.wine/c/Prog*/Auto*/Auto*

if in doubt chech with :
ls ~/.wine/c/Prog*/Common*/Autodesk*/* ~/.wine/c/Prog*/Auto*/Auto*

cd ~/.wine/c/Prog*/Auto*/Auto*
wine sketch.exe

On start up the will be a warning about needing Mozilla , cancel and ignore. Then an empty error box with an OK button , click OK. Finally an empty online registration dialog. Cancel and the program should start up fine.

Technical note: setting PATH for Autosketch using regedit
Technical note: setting PATH for Autosketch using regedit

Currently wine does not implement the installer's WriteEnvironmentStrings routine. That is the cause of the "missing dll" problem.

This can be corrected using regedit instead of copying the files across as suggested above.

This will give you a setup closer to the standard windows installation although you may find copying all to one place a bit tidier anyway.

As an alternative to copying the dll and to make "wine sketch.exe" work from outside the install directory you can use wine's regedit program to add the required PATH settings:

in regedit , navigate to :
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager\Environment

highlight PATH and change it to the following:

c:\windows\system32;c:\windows;c:\Program Files\Autodesk\Autosketch9;c:\Program Files\Common Files\Autodesk Shared

Be careful if not familiar with regedit. You could mess up your wine configuration if you change things you do not understand.
