runing ArtRage 4.5.1 64 Bit , Problem is with the installer ! The ArtRage team is working hard to solve this :D

There was still an installer problem(path variable from artrage folder structure not recognized by wine) with 4.5.9 with playonlinux/wine.

My setup:
- linux mint 17.2 KDE
- playonlinux
- wine 1.7.54
- a preinstalled version of artrage on another pc with windows setup

Steps needed for my config:
- create virtual drive(64 bit, if you have it)
- make sure windows version at least 7 or higher
- copy the folder structure from your windows machine to your linux machine into the virtual drive into the appropriate folders
- playonlinux, go to "configure", select the artrage virtual drive, go to misc, "Run a .exe file in this virtual drive", go to your path(should look like this: "/home/username/PlayOnLinux's virtual drives/artrage_4_virtual_drive/drive_c/Program Files/ArtRage 4/") and finally open "Artrage.exe"(64bit)
- enter serial key
- start drawing stuff
- click create shortcut button in playonlinux

To the Artrage Devs:

- please add a structure download instead of installer package.
- native linux port would always be appreciated.

ArtRage 4.5 works fine on Ubuntu 16.04

[1] Install ArtRage 4.5 on Windows 7 64bit machine. Below is installed location and folder structure
C:\Program Files\Ambient Design\ArtRage 4\
|_ArtRage 3 User Readme.rtf
|_ArtRage 32.exe
[2] Copy folder structure to Ubuntu 16.04 64bit (wine 1.6.2), you can copy this folder to anywhere in Ubuntu.
I copied the "ArtRage 4" to /home/<User>/software/ folder.
[3] Double click on ArtRage.exe, ArtRage 4.5 GUI will start, and ask for serial number.
[4] Click on any brush, then there is no response, you have to kill the program.
I think it is caused by "Use Multithreading" preference based on Phil's comment
[5] Run ArtRage from command line will let you access uer menu, ArtRage GUI will response
>cd /home/<user>/software/ArtRage4/
>wine ./ArtRage.exe
or >wine ./ArtRage 32.exe (ArtRage 32bit program can also run under Ubuntu 64bit)

[6] Go to ArtRage->Edit->ArtRage Preference->Advanced Preferences->Use Multithreading, uncheck this "Use Multithreading" option. Then quit ArtRage
[7] Double click on ArtRage.exe again, and this time no issue.

Yes well that,s is the problem
Install ArtRage 4.5 on Windows 7 64bit machine
And sorry to say the artrage team is doing nothing,the could make the files available in the member section for download then it runs fine under wine.

After all this time no response,so no way (guarantied) to run a newer artrage on linux on wine.
