Run Sify Broadband Windows Client On GNU/Linux

I'm using a Sify broadband connection at home, and I was delighted to see that they had a linux version of the login client. I downloaded and installed it, but it appeared crippled. It crashes frequently, losing net access, and lacks several features present in the Windows client.

So, I decided to run it on WINE (WINE Is Not An Emulator). The following steps have to be performed for it to work-

 

snapshot11. Open Wine Configuration and goto Libraries.

2. In the “New override for library”, select msvcirt.dll and click Add. Now click Edit and Select “Native (Windows)” and click OK.

3. Repeat step 2 for mfc42.dll. Click OK and close the dialog.

4. Run the Sify Broadband Setup and continue as usual. Enjoy !!

If you get any problems, comment on the article and I'll try to recommend a solution.

Happy Browsing !!
