I don't know/understand much about this, but I believe
mono is an open-source alternative to .NET... But whatever its actual niche is, I really don't know the best way to go about trying to get my windows app to work in
wine .. I'm getting a bit fed-up with running a Vista VM just for this one app; I'd much rather see it in
I tried installing 'mono for windows' in wine, but my app didn't run, but I really don't have a handle on
wine yet, to know if I did something wrong, or it just doesn't work.. I've read reports of success and failure using mono in wine...
So now I'm thinking of just installing MS
dotnetfx35.exe in wine, but if it doesn't work, I really won't know if it just requires a simple tweak, or not...
My main question, is: Can MS .NET 3.5 run under
wine, and if so, can someone direct me to a how-to... (Simple knowing if it won't work, would save me a lot of wasted time trying to get it working...
(There is no linux/open-source alternative for the app.. )
