360fly Director Software Working - How To

Post by VIN2020 » Sun Oct 14, 2018 11:33 pm

As a newbie to Linux Mint, I struggled for days to get the wine and 360fly Directors Software Application to work.

Although, after a breakthrough, here is the rough outline on how I got it to work:

1) Install wine
2) Download Windows Version of:
360fly+Director+v0.10.4+Setup.exe
From: https://www.360fly.com/Director

3) > sudo apt-get install winbind

4) Not sure if the following was necessary because it did not seem to work so only do if you run into problems:
> dpkg --add-architecture i386
> sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
> sudo apt-get update
> sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libstdc++6:i386

5) > sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
This was the breakthrough for me.

6) > wine 360fly+Director+v0.10.4+Setup.exe
7) > wine ./.wine/dosdevices/c\:/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/360fly\ Director/360fly\ Director.exe

IT NOW WORKS!!!!!! (note: do not run “wine64”)

Searching "linux wine 360fly Director" and "linux 360fly Director" gets me absolutely nothing. It's not in the wine app database. Have you tried the WIne forums? Unfortunately WIne and its derivatives like POL are all crap and you simply can't expect software to work. It's very hti and miss.

Interesting enough I trashed my Mint install by accidentally and had to reinstall 360fly Director, but again had problems.

After playing around with it again, the following worked but do not know if all were necessary.

Install wine and tools
> sudo apt-get install wine32
> sudo apt-get install winbind
> sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
> sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386
> sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libstdc++6:i386

Note: Was getting "0020:err:ole:CoGetClassObject class {f6d90f11-9c73-11d3-b32e-00c04f990bb4} not registered" until I did the following.

> export WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32
> export WINEARCH=win32
> wineboot -u

Download 360fly+Director+v0.10.4+Setup.exe
> wine 360fly+Director+v0.10.4+Setup.exe
> wine ./.wine/dosdevices/c\:/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/360fly\ Director/360fly\ Director.exe
