I thought I already answered this question to you; or you didn't received my
reply to your PM where you asked same questions? I sent it to you on Jan 23,

it this time and also because it may be helpful to others who looking for
BTW, when something doesn't work please describe exactly what the problem is,
what errors do you get (if any), and post terminal output, and mention what
version(s) of Wine you have tried.

On my server I have stable configuration based on wine-0.9.44 with some
native overrides and patches. However, general recommendation is not to use
old Wine unless you are sure that new Wine doesn't work good enough for you
or you already have stable and tested configuration with older Wine and don't
want to upgrade (for example because of possibility of regressions in newer
I just tried and MetaTrader works fine with new Wine 1.1.13 from git (but
standard 1.1.13 release probably will work fine too).
However MetaTrader's installer doesn't install mfc42.dll (without it
MetaTrader doesn't work) so you need to do this by yourself. Quickest way to
install and run MetaTrader in recent Wine:
1) First you need to install winetricks; to do so run this:
chmod +x winetricks
sudo mv winetricks /usr/bin/
2) Then install requirements for MetaTrader (gecko is used for HTML
winetricks -q gecko vcrun6
3) Install MetaTrader with Wine and work with it as usually.
You may encounter some bugs though. For example bug "[Bug 4304] Metatrader:
Double clicking to change table values doesn't work" - if this is important
to you then read this bug report and try workarounds described there.
If something still doesn't work for you or you have additional questions -
feel free to ask, maybe I will be able to help.

I use Debian GNU/Linux Lenny on my server; however, this isn't recent Lenny -
it is more than 1 year old. But actually this doesn't matter because you are
free to use any distro you like.

No. I have my own 1U server in collocation center.
