I have installed a .msi file with wine, by right-clicking on it and selecting "run with Wine". Wine has apparently succesfully installed the application: now how am I supposed to run it?

I have typed the name of the program in Ubuntu's launcher, and an item appears with that name and wine's icon, so I've tried to run that, but I get two popups one after the other with the following error messages: - invalid parameter - there is no window program configured to run this file

The program is called "inSSIDer" and I downloaded it from: http://files.metageek.net/downloads/inSSIDer-Installer-2.1.5.1393.msi

UPDATE:

$ wine start "c:\Program Files\MetaGeek\inSSIDer\inSSIDer.exe"

wine: Install Mono for Windows to run .NET 2.0 applications.
  • Any reason why not to use iwScanner or kismet? – Rinzwind Apr 20 '13 at 12:21
  • Note that inSSIDer will probably not work on Wine, since it needs direct access to the hardware / WiFi info, and Wine cannot provide that. – JonasCz - Reinstate Monica Aug 15 '16 at 9:20

Command line would be (adjust the directory if you installed it elsewhere):

wine start "c:/Program Files/MetaGeek/inSSIDer/bin/Inssider.exe"

And it will throw errors if something is wrong.

  • You probably need gdiplus ....

    sh winetricks gdiplus
    
  • You need to have winetricks installed for installing gdiplus.

    wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
    chmod +x winetricks
    

Regarding the current error:

wine: Install Mono for Windows to run .NET 2.0 applications.

So...

 winetricks mono21

  • Updated with the result of wine start "c:/Program Files/MetaGeek/inSSIDer/bin/Inssider.exe" – matteo Apr 20 '13 at 16:30
  • winetricks dotnet20 should also work (and in more cases), instead of mono21 – Smile4ever Feb 24 '15 at 18:23
