There are a couple of things that you need to do in order to get this to
work correctly.

  1. Copy the “riched20.dll” from the e-sword directory to the
    “.wine\drive_c\windows\system32” directory.

  2. Copy “msls31.dll” to “.wine\drive_c\windows\system32”. This can be
    downloaded from ‘DllDump - free dll files. download dll files you need
    immediately!’ (

  3. Open up wine config by typing “winecfg” in a terminal and add
    e-sword to the application settings if it is not already there.

  4. In the libraries, add “oleaut32”, “riched20” and “riched32”, all set
    as “native”.

Hope this gets it going for you.
