I'm currently trying to setup MathCad14 on 13.10 using Wine 1.7.

Here are the instructions I'm using.

In there I'm told to:

set all DLLs to Native (especially msvcm80.dll).

I have no idea how to do this. Can anyone explain?

  1. Open Wine Configure or winecfg from command-line.
  2. Select Libraries tab: Enter name of DLL or select it from dropbox

    enter image description here

  3. Click Add, it should be (native first then built-in) → Apply

    enter image description here


  • You may create new profile for MathCad from Applications tab if you don't want global settings.

  • DLL override modes: It's possible to force only native or builtin DLL. But I recommend using these to cover both cases:
    builtin, native wine will try its builtin DLL then Microsoft native DLL
    native, builtin wine will try Microsoft native DLL then its own builtin DLL

    See Chapter 4. Configuring Wine

  • Sometimes, it is needed to figure out which libs are loaded, this may help WINEDEBUG=+loaddll wine yourprogram.exe.

    See General help on running applications under Wine

  • Thanks! Is there a big difference between native only and native, builtin? – Scironic Mar 14 '14 at 11:29
