Installing AdiIRC in Wine on 64 bit Ubuntu and OS X.

Wine is a Windows compatibility layer which allows you to run many Windows programs on Linux/OS X.

Winetricks is a script to help you install various Windows components and programs.

Install Wine

On Ubuntu/Debian Type:

apt-get install wine

On OS X type:

# If homebrew is not installed, type
/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL" 

# Then install Wine through homebrew
brew install wine

Create a 32 bit Wine prefix

Wine does not allow running 32 bit .NET applications, so you must create a 32 bit wine folder.


WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 winecfg

Skip this step if you are running a 32 bit Linux.

Download Winetricks


chmod +x winetricks

Install .NET using Winetricks

If you downloaded the .NET 2.0 version of AdiIRC (recommended) type:

WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 ./winetricks dotnet20

If you downloaded the .NET 4.5 version of AdiIRC (not recommended) type:

WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 ./winetricks dotnet45

Run AdiIRC with Wine

After .NET is installed, you should be able to run AdiIRC by typing:

WINEPREFIX=~/.wine32 wine AdiIRC.exe
