Illustrator CC 2014 "unknown error" when trying to save

Post by squatcobbler » Sun Mar 21, 2021 7:26 pm

Ubuntu 18.04.5
wine-6.0
Illustrator CC 2014

Everything runs fine except saving files. (Anywhere on the drive (including the Wine directory in C:/. Even on the windows formatted drive.)

I either get a dialogue:

"An unknown error occurred"

Or a dialogue asking me if I want replace the existing file, but it doesn't list the file name, it asks the directory name (do you want to replace "Untitled folder" for example. Even then I get "An unknown error occurred."

I've tried running as Windows 7, as XP, as Windows 10, whatever, same thing every time.

I have such a vanilla setup I'm sure this has happened to others but I can't find anyone else.

In the AppDB, there are instructions for the 32-bit version:

I see so it says I can only save as svg and pdf?
If so, I don't see how this qualifies as "Gold" status. Where do I wine about that? (pardon the pun).
I guess I should just file it as a bug?
