if I run:

winetricks mfc40

I get this output:

Executing w_do_call mfc40

Downloading http://activex.microsoft.com/controls/vc/mfc40.cab failed

Apperently a dead link, is there an alternative way to get this DLL working?


Try the following command:

wget  https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks
chmod +x winetricks
./winetricks mfc40
