First of all, thank you for spend your time helping wine to get better,
I like to make some suggestions to make the tests results more organized to another users:
Put your PC specifications at the Extra Comments section, like the manufacturer of your CPU, speed and system memory.
Specify if you installed the program into a fresh prefix (or not), and what programs are you installed with it.
Tell what version of the windows emulation (on winecfg) you use in your wine.
Add a comment about what is doesn't working.
Tell if you put any official or unnoficial path on your application. Like some modifications on application .exe or some modification on a config file.
Give some details, please don't put tests like "Everything is working" or "Nothing isn't working".
These are just suggestions to make tests result more clean and more fast to be submitted.
How to Install
Wine 1.3.0 or newest, it's recomended the last release.
A computer with Windows installed (XP or newest) to install Fireworks (can be a VM or Dual Boot).
A replacement to fireworks.exe.
How to install
Before anything, you need to open your winecfg and set the prefix version to Windows XP or newest, since Adobe Fireworks CS3 only works on XP or newest versions of Windows.
Then, boot your Windows computer and install Adobe Fireworks CS3 like every other software.
After than, copy the windows folder "C:\Program Files\Adobe" (you can use some network share system like samba or any usb flash drive to copy) and paste on your unix: "(your-prefix)/drive_c/Program Files/Adobe"
You need to do that because the Adobe Fireworks CS3 installer don't work on Wine.
To be sure that Adobe Fireworks CS3 will Work fine you need to apply some registry patchs on your wine, to do that, create a file called fireworks.reg, edit-it with your favorite text editor and put the follow registry keys:
You also need a replacement to fireworks.exe, since the Adobe activation don't work under wine, before start Fireworks CS3 for the firsrt time, you need to replace fireworks.exe with a executable that jumps the activation process, you can find-it on google. Just find and replace it on "(your-prefix)/drive_c/Program Files/Adobe/Adode Fireworks CS3/fireworks.exe"
To finish the instalation, you need the following fonts to make Fireworks looks less ugly: arial.ttf, tahoma.ttf, times.ttf and verdana.ttf.
Now, to run Adobe Fireworks CS3 just run this command:
The Adobe Fireworks CS3 installer don't work on wine, along with other reasons the installer don't work because need .NET Framework 3.5 and it can't detect on your wine.You need another Windows machine to install Fireworks CS3
See the How-to install above.
Adobe Fireworks CS3 activation don't work.
Along with the installer, the activation also don't work, you need to replace your fireworks.exe to make fireworks work fine, please, read the How-to install above for more info.
Adobe Fireworks CS3 don't open.
This happens when the vcrun2005 and the vcrun2008 isn't installed, to install, follow the How-to install above, Fireworks also can refuse to open if the basic fonts like tahoma, arial, times and verdana aren't installed on your prefix.
Sometimes the mouse cursor become invisible on draw area.
This is a known bug, but we don't have any solution for that yet.
On your winecfg, chage the Emulation version to Windows XP.
Try recreate your wine prefix, copy your Adobe folder from your old prefix to a safe location and follow the How-To Install note again.
Verify if your wine version isn't too old (need 1.3.0 or newest).
Be sure that your Adobe folder wasn't corrupted when you copied from your Windows Computer.
