winetricks failing to work, going old school route

Post by mish.s » Sun Jan 17, 2021 10:45 pm

Mac OS High Sierra, latest brew, wine and winetricks. Upon launching winetricks, I get to the choose what dll's to install, and the OK button does nothing. No Apply , No activity, No Downloading . Ok methinks, going the old school route and using wine to run the two installers manually that I need for another app : vb6run and dotnet35sp1 . VB6 seems to know where to go just fine, however I am asked where to install the dotnet35sp1. Backed out and am here to ask. Where should I tell the installer to go? This is a little problematic in that because everything is behind the dotted-wine directory, the installer can't see it. The "net" says that all dll's should go in Windows/System32/ but that does not exist - /Windows/system does.

Suggestions?
Thanks
Al / Mish

Run winetricks using the -q flag

Code: Select all

winetricks -q dotnet35
Winetricks will now handle everything on its own ether via spite you switches or using autoit to control the setup.
