Hello all!

I'm German but I'll do this in English so everybody can use this little installation instructions. I had a lot of trouble installing it and even finding information about the installation which are up to date!

Configuration:
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit
- PlayOnLinux 4.2.1
- Wine 1.6

Please make sure PlayOnLinux and Wine are up to date! Maybe you have to update the information about new PlayOnLinux / Wine Versions manually before your system is going to recognize new versions.

Now, let's begin!

1. Download MyPhoneExplorer 1.8.5
2. Start PlayOnLinux
3. Install a new 32-bit !!! virtual drive (configure > New)
4. Press 'Install'
5. Choose the created 32-bit virtual drive for the installation
6. Browse for the downloaded *.exe-file
7. Now you'll probably get a problem because of the advert thing, which wants to install a second program. You have to kill this process. How to do that? Start a terminal > ps (if you only get a very short list, try ps -f and ps -F [the last one worked the best for me]) > look for "InstallManager." > remember the PID of "InstallManager." > now use another command inside this (or another) terminal: kill "PID of InstallManager." (in my case it was kill 5311). After you killed this process, the installation should go on.
8. After the Installation is done, you can start the programm!

I hope this can help other users! By the way, I didn't put this in the Linux-Thread because I thought it wouldn't be the proper place for an up to date installation instruction.

Greetings
Max

Hey there!

Thank you for your tutorial Max! I just installed MyPhoneExplorer1.8.5 under Ubuntu 12.04LTS 64-bit but I had to do some additional steps to make it work (mainly install VisualBasic6Runtime during setup), so here's a more detailed Tutorial for non-experienced Ubuntu users:

Configuration:
    - Ubuntu 12.04LTS 64-bit
    - PlayOnLinux 4.2.2


A brief note on Wine:
With PlayOnLinux you don't have to mess around with different versions of Wine on your system. You can manage them inside PlayOnLinux, but apparently you must have installed any version of Wine on your system. To do that, just type the following command in a Terminal:
Code:
$ sudo apt-get install wine



Instructions:

If you haven't installed PlayOnLinux yet, visit http://www.playonlinux.com/en/download.html, choose Ubuntu and follow the instructions for Precise.

UPDATE: I've written a PlayOnLinux script which automates the procedure described below:
0) Download MyPhoneExplorer_Setup_1.8.5.exe from http://www.fjsoft.at/de/downloads.php
1) Download the script: http://www.fjsoft.at/forum/forumspace/files/MyPhoneExplorer1.8.5_POL_t20567.sh
2) In PlayOnLinux, go to "Tools -> Run a local script" and browse to the script you just downloaded. You will get some warnings because the script is not digitally signed by PlayOnLinux, ignore them (and read the source if you like)
3) Follow the Wizard. You can optionally change the name of the virtual drive if you like
4) During installation of MyPhoneExplorer, an adware window will pop up. It should crash after a couple of seconds. Ignore the error message, the installation should continue. If it does not crash, follow the instructions at the end of "Manual Installation 4)" below.

Don't run MyPhoneExplorer when installation is finished

You should now have a shortcut on your Desktop. The icon is not correct, if you want to change it you might want to look for ubuntu .desktop files on google, there are a couple of good resources. The MyPhoneExplorer icon can either be found on google or be extracted from the .exe. I will not go into further detail here because there are a lot of good resources on the internet.



Manual Installation:

1) Start PlayOnLinux

2) Install Wine1.6 in PlayOnLinux
    -Go to "Tools -> Manage Wine versions"
    -In the "Wine versions (x86)" tab search for "1.6", click on it and install it by clic-king on the ">" in the middle. Follow the instructions.

    This may take some time, depending on your internet connection. You will get some prompts to install additional packages, click on yes and accept every EULA (after reading it, of course Wink).


3) Add new 32-bit virtual drive
    -In the PlayOnLinux main window, click "Configure"
    -Click "New"
    -In the wizard, choose "32 bits windows installation" and "1.6" as the Wine version to use. Give the volume any name.


4) Install MyPhoneExplorer 1.8.5
    -Download MyPhoneExplorer_Setup_1.8.5.exe from http://www.fjsoft.at/de/downloads.php
    -In PlayOnLinux main window click "Install"
    -On the bottom left click "Install non-listed program"
    -In the wizard, choose "Edit or update an existing application"
    -Tick the "Show virtual drives" checkbox and choose your newly added 32-bit virtual drive, click next
    -Tick "Install some libraries" checkbox, click next
    -Choose "32 bits windows installation"
    -Select POL_install_vbrun6, click next
    -Now click on "Browse" and choose the MyPhoneExplorer_Setup_1.8.5.exe you just downloaded
    -Follow the instructions of the install wizard

    During installation an adware window will pop up. Wait a couple of seconds, you should get an error like "InstallManager crashed ...", just click "close", the installation should continue. If it doesn't crash, open a terminal ([Ctrl]+[Alt]+T), maximize it's window and type:

    Code:
    $ ps aux | grep Install


    There should be an "InstallManager" entry. The second column is the ProcessID, use it to kill it:

    Code:
    $ kill ProcessID


    -Don't run MyPhoneExplorer when the installation has finished
    -Create a shortcut to "MyPhoneExplorer.exe"


You should be able to start MyPhoneExplorer now!


Troubleshooting:

When I installed it for the first time following The EYE's instructions, I got some Runtime Errors when trying to start MyPhoneExplorer. After reading the debug log I figured out it was the missing VisualBasic6 Runtime (vb6run), so I installed it but still got Runtime Errors. I think it was due to the fact that I installed VB6 AFTER MyPhoneExplorer and thus all of MPE's dlls haven't been registered properly.
If you're experiencing this behaviour, try registering the dlls manually:

    1) In PlayOnLinux main window, select the MyPhoneExplorer shortcut and click "Configure"
    2) In the "Miscellaneous" tab click "Open a shell"
    3) In the shell navigate to the MyPhoneExplorer DLL folder:

    Code:
    > cd Program\ Files/MyPhoneExplorer/DLL


    4) Type the following command to list all files in that folder:

    Code:
    > ls


    5) Type in the following command for every .dll and .ocx file in the list (without quotes):

    Code:
    > regsvr32 "FileName"


    Ignore all error messages.



I hope this will help someone.

Greetings
daniel

P.S.: Please excuse my poor english
P.P.S.: Why is "clic-king" being censored??

Hi all

I followed the tutorial/manual installation and myphoneexplorer seems to work. My problem is that it does not see Thunderbird on my linux mint 16 cinnamon.

Must Thunderbird be installed within playonlinux as well?

Thanks and regards
Roberto

Yes you have to install thunderbird for windows as well. For detailed instructions see http://www.fjsoft.at/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5835 "Sync MyPhoneExplorer with Thunderbird and Lightning" (in the middle of the first post). Note that both thunderbird for windows and ubuntu should be the same version as the internal database schema could change in newer versions. I once had this issue when using the same profile folder with windows and ubuntu on a dual-boot system. Some email-headers were screwed up.
Also if you installed MPE using PlayOnLinux you must install Thunderbird in the same wine prefix (virtual drive).

I installed MPE as described by The EYE, connected the phone to the pc and created a link from /dev/rfcomm0 to ~/.wine/dosdevices. MPE starts, I'm able to select bluetooth port "COM1", but if I try connect to the phone in MPE, MPE says "Port cant be opened".

Any suggestions, what's the problem? Was anyone able to use MPE with linux and bluetooth?

My linux: Xubuntu 14.04

EDIT: The bluetooth connection works, I'm able to browse the phone using serial port profile with the xubuntu bluetooth application.

Just picked up a second-hand Sony Ericsson from a used phones site online. Good if your after a cheap handset like me. Just got a pretty much as-new W995a model so pleased to see it on the list of compatible devices. I was having the same issue as Marek S but thanks to erdo_king i've realized what the issue was. Had to install ADB for USB and all now works without an issue. Thanks dan.sel for all the initial info on how to get the software working on Linux.
