How install SHAREit

Post by WZDondoni » Thu Jan 23, 2020 8:38 am

I use Linux Mint 19.3 MATE and would like to install SHAREit, which is a file sharing application over Wi-Fi.
When installing via WINE, an error is shown at the end of the installation.
I tried to install using WINETRICKS but another error is shown.
I would like to receive help from friends, I really wanted to use this application. It is very productive.

Update winetricks and install dotnet20 and dotnet40
(Installing dotnet can break other programs in your wineprefix, so I recommend you create a separate prefix for this application.
If this is the only Windows application, you can skip the WINEPREFIX=~/shareit part.)

Code: Select all

# update winetricks
sudo winetricks --self-update

# create a new prefix in ~/shareit and install dotnet20 and dotnet40
WINEPREFIX=~/shareit winetricks -q dotnet20 dotnet40

# Run the installer
WINEPREFIX=~/shareit wine SHAREit-KCWEB.exe

# Go to the directory where Shareit is installed and run it
cd ~/shareit/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/SHAREit\ Technologies/SHAREit/
WINEPREFIX=~/shareit wine SHAREit.exe
