HELP!! Running Adobe CC products error on Linux Mint 20

Post by zoo66 » Tue Jul 21, 2020 5:08 am

Hello community, I really need to get my 6 Adobe products running on Linux Mint,
I've got:
Adobe Photoshop
Illustrator
Premiere Pro
After Effects
Audition

and Media Encoder

All are already installed using a virtual machine, so all I have to do run - for example - the AfterFX.exe file. However when I do so (for any of the 6 apps) it gives me the following error:

Code: Select all

Me@AnonymousLinuxUser:~/Storage/Software/Adobe/Adobe After Effects 2020$ wine Support\ Files/AfterFX.exe
002c:err:module:LdrInitializeThunk "CRClient.dll" failed to initialize, aborting

Some Adobe software works better than others in Wine. Check out the AppDB for tips to get the different programs up and running.
All are already installed using a virtual machine, so all I have to do run - for example - the AfterFX.exe file.
I don't think this will work with Adobe software. Install the programs inside a Wineprefix.

Should I do that in the VM or using wine? I didn't install it using wine because I had problems installing wine-gecko, and I tried copying the files inside the the default place it would be installed in (drive_c/Program Files/Adobe/Adobe After Effects 2020), but I got an identical error.

You have to install programs in Wine. Copying files may work for some simple programs but will not work for applications that make registry entries and install many files.

The problem is that I get a blank white screen when running a Adobe installer, I will post another question with full details.
