How to run Radmin Viewer using Wine

Radmin has a platinum rating for Wine that means that it will be installed and run flawlessly in out-of-the-box Wine.

How to launch any application using Wine:


Getting Started with Wine

Before we go on installing and running applications in Wine, we should have a clear idea about a few things and about how to configure Wine for usage:

The general rule is to install each new application into a fresh wineprefix. We can create and maintain multiple wineprefix manually. But that task would seem rather tedious for the beginners. So, we will skip that part for now. But, later I’m going to show the way for doing that part with ease.

  • Open Wine configuration ( winecfg ) and set the Windows Version to Windows 7.
