Want to run Win-Apps on Solaris


How can i run Windows applications (like games) on Solaris? Wine gives enormous errors.

The only 2 that runs WinApps on other Operating Systems, are Cedega and CrossOver, as far as i know off...

Anybody ideas??

*ps. i used those 3 on OpenSuse 10.2 and CrossOver worked best, but does it work on Solaris too?

greetings, E. de Zeeuw

I use Wine, but very seldom the application works perfect. It is always some issues. Have you tried the latest wine version? Do you have an old version?

Therefore I am dualbooting Windows XP.

Outside Wine, you can try the virtualization way.

Qemu: http://blogs.sun.com/lyon/resource/qemu.html

Xen: if your CPU supports virtualization extensions (AMD-V or Intel VT-x), you can install Windows on a fully virtualized Xen domain running on a Solaris/Xen build (http://blogs.sun.com/virtualization/...e_is_out_mdash)

You could look into "win4sol" from the same people that make "win4lin".

I don't think it supports AMD-V. Only current AM2 and F socket cpus do. You still can try Qemu though.

Works fine with me.
/var/qemu directory missing ?
Disk full ?
File too large for the file-system used ?

You are using the Wine version from 2005. You should use the latest from 2007, just recently released. Try to download the newest and compile it, just follow my instructions on

Windows-Apps (games) on Solaris with CrossOver or Cedega!

CrossOver is the Commercial version of wine!

Better said: Wine is the Free and OpenSource version of CrossOver. The company "Codeweavers" of CrossOver is the big support behind the wine project and gives time by time the latest codes to the projectmanagers of Wine. crossover-website

There is also a second CrossOver windows-unix program called "Cedega" from the Company TransGaming Technology. The Program is specially created to run Windows-Games on Linux. CrossOver is more for programs like Office, Media-Programs and other stuff.cedega-website

I'm going to try to run these programs on Solaris and i will set the results here in this post!

Check: Codeweavers Wine-project support page!

My CPU doesn't support virtualization extensions: is Xen precluded to me, then? I'm now reading documentation on the Xen community in opensolaris.org and I'm not sure that virtualization extensions are a mandatory requirement.

Thanks,
Enrico.
