    If you're running a Linux system (who could blame you?) and you want to run Xrumer, you'll need to run it throught WINE (which stands for WINE Is Not an Emulator). This will allow you to run almost any Windows application. (You'll have to check with WineHQ's compatibility list, however. I can't post links since I'm still a newbie here.)

    First of all, make sure you have all the following software installed...

    1. WINE (Stable)
    2. sudo

    Alright, step one...

    In the Terminal, go to the directory in which you installed/extracted Xrumer(Versionnumber).exe.

    For instance, let's say you extracted Xrumer under /home/Downloads/xrumer. You'll need to open the Terminal. If you start in the /home directory, then type in...

    Code:
    cd Downloads
    cd xrumer
    Once there, you'll need to use chmod to modify the .exe into something executable in Linux. Think of it as giving it permission to run. Type this in...

    Code:
    sudo chmod 777 Xrumer(Versionnumber).exe
    Now that you have the security permissions inside the exe, type this to run it...

    Code:
    sudo wine Xrumer(Versionnumber).exe
    The setup should begin. Go through all of the steps, and remember the directory under which you extracted it. (For simplicity's sake, extract it to the same directory as Xrumer(Versionnumber).exe.)

    Go to the installed directory. (To go "up", use [cd ..]).

    Now we need to modify the actual program's .exe using the same method as the setup executable.

    Code:
    sudo chmod 777 xpymep.exe
    Then run it using WINE.

    Code:
    sudo wine xpymep.exe
    There you go! The program should be fully functional under WINE.

    Granted, I only tested the demo version, but I'm not sure what would or wouldn't be functional under the full version. More information (or a free copy of Xrumer for testing purposes :p) would be appreciated, and I will edit this topic accordingly.

    Have fun, and don't forget to +rep and thanks! I will also take any questions and answer them to the best of my ability.

    It can be either, but you'll need to execute the commands I listed via the command line. There is no solely GUI-based solution for Linux.

    The "cd .." steps, however, can be done via graphical interface, but you must have the terminal open in the correct directory. As long as you can do that, it doesn't matter how you get there.

    I tried XRumer + wine, had no real success.

    Yes, I can install it, yes I can start it. But on startup, some error message comes up and when I click start posting, nothing happens. I think the problem comes up during authorization&startup - explaining maybe why the demo works - and unfortunately, giving the credentials again with the corresponding menu item did not help, either.

    Hmm. Can you display the error here?

    Even better, you could post the Terminal's log when running Xrumer? Maybe we could figure something out.

    why not just use windows in VM?
    why use the apps on linux anyway? emulation makes them much slower

    also, as a 8 years advanced linux user ( have set up servers for many companies, wrote kernel patches, etc), i can say that after Windows 7 being out, there is no need for running linux anyway. I still have my Gentoo, cause i like to customize it, but ubuntu, etc is reallyy geek only.

    Say WHAT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You would ditch Linux over Windows 7 ?

    And you call yourself a 8 year Linux veteran :)

    Shame on you :)- jk


    By the way, in addition to the original poster you can also do this in a Virtual Environment Emulator.

    Did you use wine? Or crossover or something?

    Did you maybe install some stuff (dlls etc) ?

    I run it on Ubuntu 10.04 server 64 bit. Maybe 64 is the problem.

    I ahve a low end machine with only 768 mb of ram running ubuntu. I woul dlike to at least be able to run the linkchecker in it.

    I dont think that a virtualbox setup would be advisable with this little ram

    Anyone can post instructions on how to run the sblinkchecker.exe with WINE?

    Yee, I've been working on Ubuntu last 2 years and from my experience Wine sucks, so I've just installed a Win virtual box and run all my Applications there, but the ram is just 756MB and this is not enough!

    But the statement below really surprised me a lot. Have never heard 8 year experienced Linux professional to talk such things.

    What do you mean, dracony?
