Don't search for any logic behind my obsession for native libraries :-)
I just said to myself „I'm under Linux, could I make use of the libraries already installed? Do I have to copy the Windows ones? (They still take some space on the hard drive.) Could Wine be useful to serve as a bridge?“ I was just curious if it would be possible. And it isn't. I didn't even imagine what difficulties are hidden behind.
