Can Wine run .NET WPF applications?

Post by Dotan Cohen » Sun Dec 25, 2011 3:52 pm

When trying to run a sample .NET WPF application (that I wrote, just a
simple Hello World) I get the following message:
wine: Install Mono 2.8 or greater for Windows to run .NET 4.0 applications.

However, Mono cannot run WPF applications. Can I force Wine to run it?
Does Wine support WPF? This is with Wine 1.3.28 on the latest Kubuntu.

Thanks.

Dotan Cohen If you are lucky the WPF you have used will fall inside silverlight requirements with Mono.

If not your stuffed. Wine does not do anything special to support .net

Native windows binary programs are far more likely to work than .net based stuff with wine.

Even better learn QT and basically release native linux and be done with it.

Although I am almost certain that the XAML is silverlight-compatible
(I wrote it by hand), Mono won't run it. I'll ask about that on the
Mono list.

I see, thanks. Yet another drawback to .NET development to mark down!

Of course! Qt is a technology that I am adding to my toolbox.

Thanks!
