Just an update:
I followed this link and it still works perfect with some additions:
‌I have Debian Stretch and the winetricks in this distribution doesn't work for the dotnet-installation, because the link to the Microsoft Site is outdated. I downloaded a more recent one from https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Winetricks/winetricks/master/src/winetricks and this one works fine. It is just a script, so you can download and run it without further installation requirements.
I used ‌
‌bash winetricks dotnet35sp1
which installs also all the other older dotnets down to 2.0, so SkyDemon  can  find, what it wants.
After installation of SkyDemon the program starts, but it did not show the menu and tool bar. I played aroud with function keys after generating some route and ended up in simulation mode with Shift-F5. When I stopped simulation mode from the SkyDemon button, suddenly the menu and tool bars showed up and are always present after a restart of the program.
No idea, why this happened, but if you have the same problem, you know, what you can try.
Otherwise everything works fine under Linux/Wine‌‌.
If you have problems, please ask. I don't know, whether I can help, but I would like very  much to promote SkyDemon PC  under Linux.‌

Hi zach,

I am using Ubuntu 18.04 for a couple of weeks now. Before that I was on 14.04. Years ago I managed to get SD with PlayOnLinux and worked fine ever since. even after upgrading to Ubuntu18.04.

But today SD prompted me to update so I clicked Yes. The updater failed and said I would need .Net 4.5. So I installed dotnet45 with the script you linked above and opened SD normally. Then the popup came again asking to update SD. I clicked yes again and SD updated itself. After that it even launched normally.

But then I let SD sit for a while and got the "Are you still there window" and clicked the button. SD froze instantly and when I tried to reopen it, the "Only use in VMC" message comes up normally but the main window doesn't. It just draws the window border from gnome and that's it.

I attached the POL log file. Maybe you like to have a look inside...


Florian

Dear Florian,
I also just got the request to install dotnet 4.5 after the SD upgrade. I wil have a look, what will happen. But I am still on Debian Stretch, so the solution might not work for you, if I find one.

Dear Florian,
I installed dotnet45 with this winetricks in my present WINEPREFIX and after the update SD is running as normal. I did not yet wait for the "Are you still there" prompt, but restarted SD several times without problems.
However, I have an old wine (1.8-something, not 3.20 like you) and I have no experience with PlayOnLinux.
Does it make any difference, if you run it directly with wine like

wine /home/florian/.PlayOnLinux/wineprefix/Skydemon/drive_c/Programme/SkyDemon/SkyDemon.exe

sorry, that I can't help more.
Regards,
Joachim

Hi Joachim,

thanks for your reply. I used POL because I needed a solution to run Skydemon as 32bit on my 64bit machine. And since I am not really good with wine, POL seemed to be the most logical solution.

But anway, when I'm back from work this evening, I will try to run SD directly and will also try to downgrade my wine version. POL has some nice "Klicki-Bunti"-Window for this.

I'll let you know!

Viele Grüße aus Niedersachsen.
Florian

Hi Joachim,

got my Skydemon working again. Meanwhile I upgraded my Ubuntu from 14.04 to 18.04 and it magically resolved to SD issue. I assume that some other version of wine/POL comes with the newer Ubuntu which fixed it.

Anyway, for somebody still looking for a solution, here are some data:
Wine version: 3.20
POL version: 4.2.12
Skydemon version: 3.12.1 and 3.12.4
