Hmm.. I think my last mail didn't manage to get into the list because
of too big image attachements, sorry.
If it does, I'm sorry for dupes.
I just want to mention that I've managed to install Visual Studio 2005
completely with WINE.
1) installed "vcrun6" (with winetricks)
2) applied 1 patch from http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=8439#c3
(Required for overall installation)
3) applied patched from http://appdb.winehq.org/appview.php?iVersionId=3754
(Required for .NET 2.0 installation)
4) applied "msi: ACTION_RegisterProduct store all InstallProperties"
patch from wine-patches I've sent recently
(Without this patch Visual Studio 2005 will think that MS XML 6.0 and
some others is still uninstalled!)
Installation goes without problem, however running "devenv.exe" causes
several problems with .NET 2.0 packages and crashes a lot :( too bad.
Most crashes and errors are because of few missing WINE API functions,
and incomplete .NET 2.0 support.
Still I think WINE's close to run Visual Studio! which will be great
news for multi-platform developers.
