Has anyone gotten Adobe Digital Editions to work through wine? It installs fine for me but then fails to launch with:

Code:

Unhandled Exception:
System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException: The invocation of the constructor on type 'DE.View.Devices' that matches the specified binding constraints threw an exception. ---> System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'DE.Model.MainDataProxy' threw an exception. ---> System.TypeLoadException: Could not load type of field 'System.Windows.Controls.PrintDialog:_printQueue' (1) due to: Could not resolve type with token 01000109 from typeref (expected class 'System.Printing.PrintQueue' in assembly 'System.Printing, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35') assembly:System.Printing, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35 type:System.Printing.PrintQueue member:(null)

With lockdown in place, I have been trying to read ebooks from our library and ADE is one thing that forces me on Windows.

Anybody has any suggestions?

As per https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=33276&iTestingId=108290, it is supposed to work through wine but for some reason it crashes.

Only difference I notice from that page is that when I try to install .NET 4.0 framework standalone installer, it says that an equal or greater version is already installed

I'm running Adobe Digital Editions 3.0 with wine...

I had tried 4.5, but it was crashing, so I went with an older version since the libraries I use both work fine with it.

Great! Do you have instructions?

1. What OS did you use?
2. Did you install anything else?

I get the exact same Exception from both 3.0 and 4.5 version of the ADE

@devsk

Two ideas:
  • You may try an older version such as Adobe Digital Editions 1.7.2, which is much easier to install
  • You may try installing Adobe Digital Editions 4.5 via winetricks

I installed 4.5 using winetricks. It runs the program but does not open the library books.
