Using wine to run Microsoft Reader

If you run linux and have .lit files then its a problem reading them. Fortunately you can use wine to get Microsoft Reader up and running. There is one extra step to get it working, though. First, download msvcirt.dll from here. Unzip it and place it in ~/.wine/drive_c/windows. Now download Microsoft Reader and install it using wine.

Thanks this helped. I got it installed but it wouldn't run until I read your post and put the recomended DLL file in the windows folder.

Thanks

Worked perfectly, fixed a "serious problem" error. Thanks.
