I am using Ubuntu 15.04 64 bit, and have the following wine packages installed -

$ apt --installed list|grep wine
wine/vivid,now 1:1.6.2-0ubuntu8 amd64 [installed]
wine-gecko2.21/vivid,now 2.21-0ubuntu1 amd64 [installed,automatic]
wine-mono0.0.8/vivid,now 0.0.8-0ubuntu1 all [installed]
wine1.6/vivid,now 1:1.6.2-0ubuntu8 amd64 [installed,automatic]
wine1.6-amd64/vivid,now 1:1.6.2-0ubuntu8 amd64 [installed,automatic]
wine1.6-i386/vivid,now 1:1.6.2-0ubuntu8 i386 [installed,automatic]
winetricks/vivid,now 0.0+20140302-0ubuntu2 all [installed]

I want to install .NET 2.0 (dotnet20).

  1. Since I'm on a 64bit machine, I set wineprefix and environment like so

    $ export WINEPREFIX="/home/usr/.wineprefixes/office2010/"
    $ export WINEARCH="win32"
  2. However, installing dotnet20 gives me the following error

    $ winetricks dotnet20
    Executing w_do_call dotnet20
    Executing load_dotnet20
    Executing w_do_call remove_mono
    Executing load_remove_mono
    Mono does not appear to be installed.
    Executing w_do_call fontfix

    Setting Windows version to win2k
    Executing winetricks_early_wine regedit C:\windows\Temp\_dotnet20\set-winver.reg
    Current wine does not have wine bug 30845, so not applying workaround
    Executing wine dotnetfx.exe

    err:winediag:SECUR32_initNTLMSP ntlm_auth was not found or is outdated. Make sure that ntlm_auth >= 3.0.25 is in your path. Usually, you can find it in the winbind package of your distribution.

    err:msidb:get_tablecolumns column 2 out of range
    Note: command 'wine dotnetfx.exe' returned status 84.  Aborting.

    The installer on wine quotes on a message box Installation package could not be opened. Contact the application vendor to verify this is a valid Windows installer package

  3. I have tried opening the winetricks GUI and installing from there (the changed WINEPREFIX has been recognized). I have also tried env WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=/home/usr/.wineprefixes/office2010/ winetricks dotnet20, but I get the same error.

  4. I have also tried uninstalling wine-mono, and then installing dotnet20, but no avail. So, I reinstalled the mono package.

A thread says installing Wine1.7 from the PPA is one way to make things work. However, since that is not a stable version I do not wish to install it. Can I make dotnet20 work with Wine1.6xx ?

To solve this error:

err:winediag:SECUR32_initNTLMSP ntlm_auth was not found or is outdated.

you need to install winbind:

sudo apt-get install winbind

This Samba package provides a daemon which integrates authentication and directory service (user/group lookup) mechanisms from a Windows domain on a Linux system.

This will probably fix your main error:

Note: command 'wine dotnetfx.exe' returned status 84. Aborting.

as .NET does require a working ntlm_auth.
