    For those who still cannot run UltraSurf with Wine, I found something that might help:

    I’m using Ubuntu 10.10 (the Marverick Meerkat), with wine 1.2. Copying
    the dll files did not work as it kept complaining about one of the dlls,
    while it was there. So I found this guys note and it really worked
    using ‘winetricks’:

    Remember that you should first delete the dlls you’ve previously copied to the wine folder and then run the winetrick command.
    Also if you don’t have winetricks, you should run these commands:
       wget    chmod +x winetricks

    Just confirming I had issues with u1103.exe and the latest wine 1.3.x on ubuntu 11.10. You need to backtrack to the older wine 1.2.x and then it works perfectly ! The newer wine has issues. Spent way too much time trying to get this to work.

    Thanks for this page btw !

    Anyone else having the issue where the DLL page doesn’t allow a download? I can load the page but when I try to click the download button, it looks as if it is trying to load.
