I got both programs working* with Wine 5.0.2 in a 32 bit prefix with dotnet471 and d3dcompiler_47
*) I don't have a login, so I can't test the full program.

1. Create a 32 bit prefix with dotnet471 and d3dcompiler_47

Code: Select all

WINEPREFIX=~/trading WINEARCH=win32 winetricks -q dotnet471 d3dcompiler_47
2. Install and run VectorVest7

Code: Select all

# install
WINEPREFIX=~/trading wine setup.exe
# run
cd ~/trading/drive_c/Program\ Files/VectorVest/VectorVest\ 7/bin
WINEPREFIX=~/trading wine VVShell.exe
3. Install and run Fidelity ActiveTrader Pro

Code: Select all

# install
WINEPREFIX=~/trading wine setup.exe
# run (replace <username> with your username
cd ~/trading/drive_c/users/<username>/Start Menu/Programs/Fidelity\ Investments
WINEPREFIX=~/trading wine start Fidelity\ Active\ Trader\ Pro®.appref-ms

Thanks for this speedy response. I will try it out.
I might need a super newbie step by step guide to installing wine correctly and the programs.

Thanks. I am upgrading my system to Linux Mint 20 to be able to get the Wine 5.02 version. I am not sure whether the process would be straight forward or if I need to install other things.

I wish there was an easy step by step for beginners or newbies on how to install wine, setup wine and install the windows based software.

Please advise if opportuned. I will try this evening to see if I succeed.

The instructions for installing wine-stable, on Ubuntu, are posted on the WineHQ Wiki: Ubuntu webpage.
