WINEPREFIX=~/.wine-myphoneexplorer WINEARCH=‘win32’ wine MyPhoneExplorer_Setup_1.9.0.exe (make sure the exe file name is correct).

  1. Start MyPhoneExplorer

Start from the desktop icon or the entry in the applications menu or “Alt-F2 MyPhoneExplorer”
NB: The app does not appear in the task bar and can be hidden by other windows so “Alt-Tab” to locate. This is probably fixable.
I have synced by my phone over WiFi and sent SMS messages. All the buttons work. No issue to report so far.
