Installation hints for Regex Coach On Linux

There is no current port of Regex Coach for Linux. However it will run well under the current version of Wine, an MS Windows substitute for Linux

  • Install a current version of Wine and cabextract, I'm using Wine 1.0.1 installed via the standard package management system
  • Install the MS C++ runtime library msvcr80 under Wine. The easist way is to install Wine Tricks and run
  sh ./winetricks vcrun2005
  • Download and run the Regex Coach installer under Wine. NB You must have the C++ runtime library installed before running the install.

Regex Coach should now appear under your Wine program menu
