I use Xubuntu 12.04 and I installed Wine 1.4. I am now trying to install the .NET 4.0 Framework using Winetricks. I use this command

sudo sh winetricks dotnet40

But I get this error

wine cmd.exe / c echo '% ProgramFiles%' returned empty string

I get this error when I try to install other programs as well. I have managed to install .NET Framework 4.0. previously, but now I can not get this install to go smoothly. How can I resolve this error?

You don't need to use sudo there. –  user203631 Mar 2 '13 at 16:10

did you get the file first? Try the following:

$ ­wget http://winetricks.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/src/winetricks

$ bash winetricks dotnet40

WineHQ gives .NET 4 a bronze rating at best. Its ability to install and run properly will vary by which version of Wine you are running.

Try this:

$ sudo apt-get install winetricks
