Zeus under Linux

Post by Phil Hansen » Wed Jun 17, 2009 3:54 pm

I am considering getting a Linux (Ubuntu) box.
Will Zeus work in one of the emulators - Wine etc?
Would not like to give up my favorite editor.
Thanks

Hi Phil,

In the very early days of Wine I did do some testing of Zeus and even reported a few bugs to the Wine developers.

Back then Zeus seemed to work quite well on Wine.

Now Wine has changed a lot since then and I have no tried it since, but I suspect Zeus will still run well, hopefuly even better.

A lot of Zeus is stock standard WIN16 code ported to WIN32 which makesit a pretty stock standard Windows application and these where the areas of Win32 first tackled by Wine.

I would be very interested to know how you get on ;)

Cheers Jussi

Hi Jussi,
Thanks for the info.
Still at the thinking stage about getting a Linux box but will let you know how it goes.

Hi Jussi,
Tried Zeus using Cross over linux.
Got an icon on the desktop and could see all the files but it would not run.
Have not tried Wine or Win4Lin yet.

Cheers

Since Zeus uses AsProtect, I suspect the the problem is related to this bug report:

AsProtected Programs Crash: http://www.mail-archive.com/wine-devel@ ... 01665.html

and this later bug report: http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5294

Installed v3.97j in Debian

Post by Rat » Mon Apr 02, 2012 10:53 am

I decided to have a play with Wine and Zeus on Debian Wheezy and have now got it running nicely...

Firstly you need to install the "MS XML Core Services 3.0" and the "Visual C++ 2008 Libraries" under Wine.

I used winetricks to do this, but unfortunately it has a bug preventing the vcrun2008 to install, so I used it to install ms3xml.msi and then used winetricksfix to complete the vcrun2008 installation.

Once these are installed you can use Wine to run the Zeus Installer.

I can run Zeus by typing wine "/home/sysadmin/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Zeus/zeus.exe at the command line when logged in as root... otherwise you will need to use sudo.

I hope this helps others who want to use the excellent Zeus editor as a cross-platform tool.

Cheers,
Rat.

Hi Rat,

Thank's for taking the time to figure this out.

A long time ago, I attempted to get Zeus running on Linux under Wine.

Through that initial testing I even reported a few Wine/Win32 bugs.

But I didn't spend a lot of time on getting this to work :(

The Visual C++ 2008 Libraries requirement makes a lot of sense since the Zeus Windows installer even has to check for and install these Microsoft components.

I 'm glad to hear that it is in fact possible to run Zeus under Wine :)

Job well done :!:

Cheers Jussi

Inspired by Rat's efforts I tried running Zeus on Ubuntu 11.10 using the standard Wine package that comes with that release.

To my surprise I found it very easy to install and nearly everything worked perfectly :)

The results of my efforts can be seen here: http://www.zeusedit.com/platform.html
