Just thought I would share with you that this works fine in Linux under Wine:

I'm trying but it won't activate. When I enter the code, it says it can't send it via the Internet. I have the same experience as https://forum.softmaker.com/viewtopic.p ... 802#p65269

Since it is WINE, I'm not certain how to set up the Internet.

=P~ Hi, wine does not need to have Internet separately. I have now ditched all Ubuntu derivatives and Linux OS's that use Systemd. I have been advised that Snap packages have a security issue similar to 'telnet' and 'finger'. Also, systemd is apparently the equivalent of giving your PC a 'barcode' that ANYONE can read. I have migrated to Devuan 3.0 (codenamed "beowulf"). I have also ditched Virtual Box in favour of Aqemu with Virtual Machine Manager - the desktop graphics give the impression that Windows 7 Pro is running on the hardware. So I no longer need to use wine.😎
I've ditched both Zorin and Feren as a result. I am extremely pleased that under Devuan after installing all ALSA packages I was able to remove Pulse Audio without breaking the system and effectively removing the bloatware of Pulse Audio. Feren gets bloated with flatpak. I only install software via Synaptic Package Manager (or Gdebi in respect of SoftMaker Office) .
