ProUCL

Post by tc68 » Tue Jun 04, 2019 7:31 pm

Hi

I use a piece of software for work called ProUCL, issued by USEPA

I am using linux mint (19.1) but haven't done much with wine before.

The program "installs" by extraction from a zip file to a local folder. I can get it to run using "wine ProUCL.exe" from a command line. The dropdown menu for "file" when it runs this way does not have a save option, and I can't work out why not.

Hoping for some suggestions.

Thanks

This program needs Microsoft .Net
The .Net Framework can break other applications in your Wineprefix.
Create a clean 32-bit Wineprefix and use winetricks to install dotnet40

Code: Select all

WINEPREFIX=~/ProUCL WINEARCH=win32 winetricks -q dotnet40
# unzip proucl_5.1.zip to ~/ProUCL/drive_c
cd "~/ProUCL/drive_c/proucl_5.1/ProUCL 5.1"
WINEPREFIX=~/ProUCL wine ProUCL.exe

Thanks, I'll give this a go.

Where do you suggest is the best place for instructions on using wineprefix? I am unsure if this code goes in a normal linux terminal or in wine somewhere (I have never set anything else up in wine before).

You could read https://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#Wineprefixes if you want more information about wineprefixes.
