    Issues trying to install vcrun2008 using Wine


    I am running a 32 bit Centos 5.4 Amazon EC2 instance. I am trying to install vcrun2008 and dotnet20 using wine and i am experiencing some kernel problems.

    These are the steps I am following:-

    1) Install Wine - this is successful - version 1.0.1
    2)Get winetricks
    $ mkdir ~/bin/ && cd ~/bin/
    $ wget winetricks
    $ chmod 744 ~/bin/winetricks
    3) Set OS to Winxp
    $winetricks winxp - this is successful
    4) Install corefonts
    $ winetricks corefonts - this is successful
    5) Attemp installation of vcrun2008
    $ winetricks vcrun2008

    I get the following:-

    winetricks vcrun2008

    Executing wget -O vcredist_x86.exe -nd -c --read-timeout=300 --retry-connrefused --header Accept-Encoding: gzip,deflate

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Myself for this stuff I prefer to run real Windows in a virtual machine. It eliminates a LOT of problems. I do run a number of applications and utilities with Wine, including my Sparx Enterprise Architect UML modeling tool. However, a lot of applications simply don't work well without too much pain and suffering.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
