I got both programs working* with Wine 5.0.2 in a 32 bit prefix with dotnet471 and d3dcompiler_47
*) I don't have a login, so I can't test the full program.

1. Create a 32 bit prefix with dotnet471 and d3dcompiler_47

Code: Select all

WINEPREFIX=~/trading WINEARCH=win32 winetricks -q dotnet471 d3dcompiler_47
2. Install and run VectorVest7

Code: Select all

# install
WINEPREFIX=~/trading wine setup.exe
# run
cd ~/trading/drive_c/Program\ Files/VectorVest/VectorVest\ 7/bin
WINEPREFIX=~/trading wine VVShell.exe
3. Install and run Fidelity ActiveTrader Pro

Code: Select all

# install
WINEPREFIX=~/trading wine setup.exe
# run (replace <username> with your username
cd ~/trading/drive_c/users/<username>/Start Menu/Programs/Fidelity\ Investments
WINEPREFIX=~/trading wine start Fidelity\ Active\ Trader\ Pro®.appref-ms

Thanks for this speedy response. I will try it out.
I might need a super newbie step by step guide to installing wine correctly and the programs.

Thanks. I am upgrading my system to Linux Mint 20 to be able to get the Wine 5.02 version. I am not sure whether the process would be straight forward or if I need to install other things.

I wish there was an easy step by step for beginners or newbies on how to install wine, setup wine and install the windows based software.

Please advise if opportuned. I will try this evening to see if I succeed.

The instructions for installing wine-stable, on Ubuntu, are posted on the WineHQ Wiki: Ubuntu webpage.

Has anyone tried these direction and gotten Active Trader Pro (ATP) to install and work?
I've tried this on 2 different machines both running 20.04, the WineHQ rep version of wine-stable, and the latest version of winetricks from git.
The 1st machine ATP wouldn't install, the exe just won't go so I played with the versions of Net Framework in the wineprefix and eventually got the install to start but it got stuck in a loop of trying to install Net Framework.
I've installed ATP successfully under Win10 and MacOS recently and both of them try to install Net Framework as part of the install process, even if Net Framework is already installed on the machine. ATP is not so well maintained anymore and pretty clunky in Win10; its native environment.
I tried installing on a 2nd machine with a clean install of 20.04.01, wine-stable again and no modifications to the wineprefix winetricks called out in this guide. The install ran but with a ton of errors in the counsel window and no attempt to install Net Framework. Wine can open ATP and get to the log in screen and you can login but then ATP just errors out with a very generic error message.
