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:
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winecfg
You can use it this way combined with winetricks to configure WINEARCH, create the prefix and install dotnet 2.0 in one command:
env WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winetricks dotnet20
env WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winetricks dotnet20
if you already set the WINEARCH and created the WINEPREFIX with the 1st command above.
