Anyone possible to run B4J on Wine?

I'm using ROSA Linux's wine32 package with winetricks installed from the package manager, too. I used winetricks to install .NET 4.7.2 but it finally failed after a while. After that I tried to install VC++ 2010 runtime but this failed, too. The error seems indicating some checksum mismatch of the redist package itself :(

Which version of Wine and winetricks do you use?
The program seems to work fine with Wine 6.13 and .Net 4.52 installed with winetricks 20210206-next
You should be able to update winetricks with:

Code: Select all

sudo winetricks --self-update
and install the .Net Framework with:

Code: Select all

winetricks -q dotnet452

How to install winetricks manually? I installed winetricks using package from ROSA Linux repo, so I don't think it's right to let winetricks upgrade itself since it will cause inconsistency with the package manager. I will uninstall ROSA Linux's version of winetricks first and install my own version.

Winetricks is one big shell script.
You can download it here (Right click, Save Link as..., winetricks)
and run it with:

Code: Select all

sh winetricks -q dotnet452
