There is another thread with almost the exact same question title, however the solution does not work for me (possible updates for wine/ubuntu?)
I'm trying to install MathCad 14 on my Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit machine. There are various things I need to install first, such as MDAC2.6, all of which I've succesfully installed. However dotnet 2.0 refuses to follow suit.
These are the commands I've used:
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winecfg (I set it to winxp) env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winetricks dotnet20
That's the advice from the previous question.
I've tried numerous other solutions all along the same lines (make a win32 folder to install in 32 bit etc.) but none have got me as far as the above method. Here the installer opens and runs. However it aborts whilst running. I get the following messages in the terminal which may be of interest:
Mono does not appear to be installed Working around wine bug 30845 -- Using native fusion while installing... Note: command 'env WINEDLLOVERRIDES=mscoree,fusion=n wine dotnetfx.exe' returned status 67. Aborting.
After that last line it aborts and the GUI says:
"The following error occurred during setup: Installation failed"
Which is obviously very useful./s
I've also tried to install dotnet4.0 in the hopes a more modern version could also work for Mathcad. However I get to a similar point where an error occurs saying that a file could not be found.
EDIT: My version of wine must have been unstable or something. I purged wine, deleted all the folders and reinstalled wine 1.6 and winetricks. After that dotnet20 installed straight away no problem.
