Title: Success with WINE
Post by: kwm on November 29, 2017, 04:04:32 PM

I'm running Debian 9 64 bit.  I had trouble with PlayOnLinux, I couldn't get winetricks to install vcrun2015.  So I tried doing things without POL following the arch wiki.

1.  download the installer exe file and make it executable
chmod u+x Autodesk_Meshmixer_v3p2_Win64.exe

2. create a directory to store the wine config
mkdir $HOME/meshmixer-wine

3. create a 64 bit WINE setup in that directory
WINEARCH=win64 WINEPREFIX=~/meshmixer-wine wineboot -u

4. use winecfg to change the windows version (may be optional, I'm not sure) and add a drive to easily access your files (optional)
WINEARCH=win64 WINEPREFIX=~/meshmixer-wine winecfg

5. use winetricks to install vcrun2015
WINEARCH=win64 WINEPREFIX=~/meshmixer-wine winetricks vcrun2015

6. install MeshMixer (replace "path/to" with the actual location of the file, probably $HOME/Downloads )
WINEARCH=win64 WINEPREFIX=~/meshmixer-wine wine64 path/to/Autodesk_Meshmixer_v3p2_Win64.exe

7. run MeshMixer with this command
WINEPREFIX=~/meshmixer-wine wine64 $HOME/meshmixer-wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Autodesk/Meshmixer/meshmixer.exe

if you don't want to type out that command each time, you can put it in a shell script
