I have a speed-reading program I purchased with uses dotnet2. However, dotnet2 doesn't run on 64 bit wine. How would I install dotnet2?
You can have multiple wine prefix on your machine, each running as a separate wine. So you can make a 32 bits prefix and install dotnet2 in it:
This will create a new wineprefix (.wine32 in your home) and configure it as 32 bits:
You can use it this way combined with winetricks to configure WINEARCH, create the prefix and install dotnet 2.0 in one command:
if you already set the WINEARCH and created the WINEPREFIX with the 1st command above.
just to make it more straightforward to use wine in 32bit mode. Create a file in ~/bin/wine32 with the following content
env WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 wine $*
Make the file executable to launch wine in 32bit mode using
Hope that helps :-)
