Enterprise Architect 11/12 under Wine

To install EA under Linux with wine there are a few steps to take before it works and you are able to run EA plugins:

  • Install winetricks
  • Prepare a 32bit wine runtime with WINEARCH=win32 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine winecfg (just click ok in the dialog)
  • winetricks allfonts (this exited with an exit code on my machine, but this was no problem)
  • winetricks msxml3 mscml4 mdac28
  • winetricks dotnet40 corefonts (needed for plugins – not sure if corefonts is necessary)
  • After that you can install your .exe files with wine xyz.exe and .msi files with wine msiexec /i abc.msi
