MetaTrader4 using wine

I trade the forex market and would like to download the mt4 trading platform. I have downloaded wine, but have noticed that I need windows files. I am currently running opensuse 11.1 exclusively, do I need to dual boot with windows for this to work?

According to this link:, you can use metatrader4 with wine but you need some dlls copied from windows to install it.
So your options are:
1/ find a friend who has windows installed and get the dlls from him, or from any computer running Windows.
2/ temporarily install Windows on your machine in order to get the dll. You can do that in a virtual machine like Virtualbox or qemu.
3/ Just install Windows in a virtual Machine (Virtualbox or qemu or vmware) and use it in the virtual machine.
4/ Install windows in a separate partition and dual boot it to run Metatrader
