    hello forum,
    does someone run a recent version of codesys ( under Wine or Crossover? As this seems to be broken from 3.5.16

    I just installed under Wine-staging 7.0, on Ubuntu/Linux 20.04.
    Using installer don't work! I followed step like in Ingo install2.sh.
    Now I'm launching 64bit version, but some native library is needed for package manager.

    I just tried CODESYS 3.5.18 64 bit.

    wine winecfg (Select Windows 10 as version)
    winetricks -q dotnet48 (Popup require 4.6.2, but 4.8 is realy required)
    winetricks --force -q vcrun2019 (2015-2019 in single package)
    wine CODESYS\ 64\ (Extracted from ZIP download)
    -Deselected gateway due a linux gateway exists;
    -Deselected runtime due linux runtime exists;
    Installer work until IPMCLI.exe

    IPMCLI.exe fail in .net Culture Expetion:

    0670:err:eventlog:ReportEventW L"Application: IPMCLI.exe\nFramework Version: v4.0.30319\nDescription: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.\nException Info: System.Globalization.CultureNotFoundException\n   at System.Globalization.CultureInfo..ctor(System.String, Boolean)\n   at System.Globalization.C"...

    Put all locales to en_US.UTF8, let me install and run CODESYS 3.5.18 in wine.
    You can see attached image!
    The problem remain in ncrypt.

    047c:fixme:ncrypt:NCryptOpenStorageProvider (000000005F38E318, L"Microsoft Software Key Storage Provider", 0): stub
    047c:fixme:ncrypt:NCryptSetProperty flags 0x40000000 not supported

    This make impossible verify any signature. So is not possible do anything else editing code. Not very useful!

      I already encountered the same issue in a different context. The problem
      occurs also when you try to run the simulation, or connect to a PLC with
      encrypted communication.

      I assume it is a bigger task, but I believe the clean solution is to
      implement ncrypt in wine.

      Googling for it, turned out, that there was a fix in this region recently:

      The microsoft installer was the driving force for that.

      Maybe you want to try this new wine version?
      I am already very curious, if it works now...

        My test was made in 7.7 Staging... So...
        ncrypt is partially implemented, but it's missing CODESYS required API calls.

      Let's go!

      1 - I installed WINE Development 7.7 from repository.
      2 - I downloaded 7.7 development source code.
      3 - Go in 7.7 source:

      $ cd src/wine-7.7/
      $ configure --enable-win64
      $ cd dlls/ncrypt

      4 - Edit main.c adding this just before SECURITY_STATUS WINAPI NCryptImportKey

                                             const WCHAR *type, NCryptBufferDesc *params, BYTE *data,
                                             DWORD datasize, DWORD *pcbResult, DWORD flags)
          struct object *object = (struct object *)(&handle); 
          NTSTATUS status;
          status = BCryptExportKey(object->key.bcrypt_key, NULL, type, data, datasize, pcbResult, 0); 
          return ERROR_SUCCESS;

      5 - edit ../../include/ncrypt.h adding this line before

                                             const WCHAR *, NCryptBufferDesc *, BYTE *,
                                             DWORD, DWORD *, DWORD);

      6 - ...

      $ make

      7 - copyed resulting ncrypt.dll and .so in ...

      $ sudo cp ncrypt.dll.so /opt/wine-devel/lib64/wine/x86_64-unix/
      $ sudo cp ncrypt.dll /opt/wine-devel/lib64/wine/x86_64-windows/
      $ cp ncrypt.dll /home/marco/.wine.codesys/drive_c/windows/system32/

      To be tested and improved!

        Just tested!
        Function is called.
        I only build this single DLL.
        Some difference on message above:
        - I configured with -prefix=/opt/wine-devel
        - I used make install, but install copied in /opt/wine-
        devel/lib/... and not in /opt/wine-devel/lib64/... so I copied DLL from lib to lib64.
        - I also modified spec file to declare new funcion, marked as STUB.
        Function is called by wine, BCryptExportKey is implemented in WINE, but I translated something in a wrong way and this result in an exception in NCryptFreeObject.

        I think is the right way, but much work is needed.
        I just writed also in wine forum.

        A second problem I think need a solution to make CODESYS working under wine is manage flag 0x4000000 in NCrypt.

          Hi @mondinmr ,

          you got me curious. I'm wondering:
          How did you install SP18?

          Did you manage it with the installer, or did you use the install2.sh
          script, or ... ?


          • mondinmr

            mondinmr - 2022-05-04

            Hi Ingo!
            I downloaded install2.sh to see what you are doing.

            I used 3.5.18 64bits, due a wine transition to 64bits in 7.0. They introduced syswow64 for 32bis compatibility and they started to suggest 64bits usage.

            3.5.18 is in zip and not exe file.
            I extracted msi.

            I used winetricks to install dotnet472, arial, corefonts, vcrun2019.
            Aftrer that I dowloaded Edge runtime 2 64 from microsoft, due the one present in prerequisites of 3.5.18 not working.

            A very important step, for me is call winecfg, select windows10, and disable windows decorations managed by windows manager. Wine tricks put it back to Windows 7 so I select 10 just before launch installer.

            Now I'm working on ncrypt dll.

    Ok! I patched ncrypt.dll!
    Now signatures are verified!!!!!!!

    Now more tests are needed!

    In attachment there are modified files!

    Now missing of 0x4000000 FLAG managment (i'm not sure), bring randomly to this:

    Only for test purpose i put a reuturn in NCryptFreeObject after call, this bring in a memory leak, but now installer work, packages are installed, signatures working. So NCRYPT_PERSIST_ONLY_FLAG probability could be managed in a key property avoiding free when this property is set.

    In 3.5.18 Codesys Installer is needed, so dll should compiled also in 32bit, due this program is released only in 32bit (why in 2022??????).

    Some problem persists in online.

    A side comment out off topic... This massive usage of .net and C# is making development system a little bit too heavy.
