It is still open source (under the APL, aladdin public licence).

If you can, try and find 15$ for the subscription.

Failing that, give ordinary wine a go, tell us what errors you have.

I haven't been able to get it to work with regular wine.
It uses an installshield, which causes problems -- WineX supports installshield installers.

If you do get it installed with regular wine, you'll also have tofind a no-cd patch, since wine doesn't support cd-checks that most of these games use.

On top of that, wine has to be able to run the no-cd patch, which I've had problems with as well...

So the short answer is probably no, not without WineX.

Were you able to get aok/aoc to work with winex? I have goen to pure linux recently and that is the only app from windows I am missing. If you can get it to work (online) I would be willing to pay for winex. Have you had any luck?
