Hi there,

Has anyone had success running MemoQ in linux using WINE? If so, which versions did you use? I haven't been able to make it past the errors caused by installing Microsoft .NET Framework, and .NET is required for MemoQ. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

If you can't install .Net on Wine, try another virtualization software, e.g. Virtual Box.

VirtualBox questions Feb 19, 2010

Grzegorz,

Thank you for the tip. I was hoping to make WINE work because I am very inexperienced with setting up virtual machines. I'm running Linux alongside a copy of Windows XP. If I want to run Windows in VirtualBox, do I need to obtain an additional copy or can I use the one I already have?

not possible without WB Feb 21, 2010

Hello,

One week ago I asked Kilgray if there is any possibility to operate memoQ under Linux without virtual machine. The answer was negative, since memoQ is connected to Windows in several points; besides .Net, memoQ needs for example Word to display the texts.

If you have Linux or Mac, Virtual machine is the only possible way to to use memoQ.

Regarding to your second question, you definitely need an extra (unused) license to install XP under virtual machine.

Good luck!

Gyula
