How do I install Java Runtime 8 in Wine?

Post by Moonwave » Tue Feb 25, 2020 7:45 pm

Hello,

I am having troubles installing JRE 8 in Wine. It's a known issue that the installer is broken and produces a dialog with no text in the interface and you are unable to install JRE.

I see that some people have done a workaround and installed it manually, but I was unable to figure it out myself.

The part I am getting stuck at is after unzipping tools.zip. It says that "unpack200 must be called on all pack200ed JAR files", but I have not found these JAR files nor figured out how to use "unpack200".

Has anyone on the forum installed JRE 8+ with Wine successfully and can help?

You can use the one from your linux install, for me on Arch Linux it's in the package "java-runtime-common"
