Howto: Make Cynapse Infocryptor run on wine in Ubuntu 8.0.4

Here’s a blast from the past:I’ve figured out how to make Cynapse InfoCryptor work on Ubuntu Desktop. Here’s how you can do it too:

  1. Install the lastest version of Wine (I used 1.0)
  2. Install Winetricks
  3. Install all 3 MDAC components from the GUI that comes when you run:
    •  ~/winetricks.sh
  4. Install and run Infocryptor as normal. It will appear under Wine -> Programs -> Cynapse in your Ubuntu Main menu.
