Watchtower Library Danish on Ubuntu

WOW! I can’t believe it. I got Watchtower Library running on Ubuntu and it took me about 15 minutes. This is how I did it:

  1. In the Applications menu I selected Add/Remove
  2. I searched for and installed wine
  3. I inserted the Danish Watchtower Library in the CDROM drive
  4. Ubuntu popped up and showed me the contents of the CDROM
  5. Right clicked on setup.exe and select Open with…
  6. type wine
  7. A normal Watchtower installation then occurs, I selected hard disk installation
  1. A successfully installed screen pops up and the installation process is complete.

    Running the Watchtower Library was a bit more tricky, so I did a search on the Internet and found out that I needed to do the following to run Watchtower Library:

  2. open a command window
  3. enter this command: cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Watchtower/MEPSCommon/
  4. and then this command: wine ../Watchtower\ Library\ 2005/d/wtlib.exe
  1. Please note that this command is for the Danish 2005 version. You might need to type wine ../Watchtower\ Library\ 2005/e/wtlib.exe to get the English 2005 version to run.

    That was all that I did to get Watchtower Library to run in Linux. Very handy and easy!

    • One little tip: If you have trouble looking in the Bible or the Watchtower Volumes then you probably need to click and drag the window a bit.
