Thank you for the answer TinWhisker. I've used the .deb package to install Wine (on Ubuntu), so I'd expect it to installed properly. But I try to look into that and the .Net runtimes.
I had not heard about Mono before, but it sounds very interesting. That would be quite great if it would be possible to run PicoScope 6 natively. Do you think that it's possible? My error message for Mono was:
- Code: Select all
tony@tony-desktop:~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Pico Technology/PicoScope6$ mono PicoScope.exe

Does that make any sense?
Let's hope that some Mono expert on this forum gets interested and does his magic. Maybe be the developer team of PicoLabs could also help on this?
I think professionals would be very interested in this. At least on my work place, the main reason people are still using analog devices is that they don't want to use windows. Or don't have access to. Of course they could use something like Matlab to process the data, but still, a user friendly software is something they'd like to have.
