Since Ubuntu 13.04, the installer of Python 2.7 under Wine fails. The installer opens, lets me select the directory, the progress bar goes almost through, and then I get message that the installation has stopped. Running the installer msiexec from a terminal reveals an error like „shared access not implemented“.
I also tried a Python 3.3 in 64bit. But it cannot installed too. The installer fails to go beyond the directory selection.
C. Collomb taught me how to solve this. His commands are
1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-wine/ppa 2. sudo apt-get update 3. sudo apt-get install wine1.6 winetricks
Then you can install Python 2.7.5 without problems.
