I'm trying to install both Neuroprogrammer 2 and 3 in WINE.

At first I got the error:

Please set registry key HKLM\software\microsoft.NETFramework\installroot to point to the .Net Framework install location"

As described in this question.

And so I installed .NET, but now I get an error that says:

Neuro-Programmer 2.exe - .NET Framework Initialization Error
To run this application, you first must install one of the following versions of the .NET Framework:
Contact your application publisher for instructions about obtaining the appropriate version of the .NET framework. 

This is the error I get after I installed .NET 2.0. Therefore I decided to install .NET 2.0 SP2 and still got the same error.

Any ideas?

This seems to be a bug with wine at the minute, as noted here, which discusses the same issues. I have also yet to overcome it with any workarounds- apart from Virtualbox running a full version of Windows. The current development version of wine (1.5.19) also has the same problems. – user76204 Dec 30 '12 at 0:39
