AdobeAir

What is it?

"The Adobe AIR runtime enables developers to package the same code into native applications and games for Windows and Mac OS desktops as well as iOS and Android devices, reaching over a billion desktop systems and mobile app stores for over 500 million devices."

-from http://get.adobe.com/air/

What does it do?

Installs the Adobe Air package.

When would I need it?

Certain Adobe products require this to be installed as a dependency.

Script/Shell command:

POL_Call POL_Install_AdobeAir

corefonts

What is it?

"TrueType is an outline font standard developed by Apple and Microsoft in the late 1980s as a competitor to Adobe's Type 1 fonts used in PostScript. It has become the most common format for fonts on both the Mac OS and Microsoft Windows operating systems."

from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/TrueType

What does it do?

Downloads and registers TrueType fonts (TTF). Here is a list of the fonts that will be installed into the given virtual drive:

  • andale mono
  • arial black
  • arial (bold, italic, bold italic)
  • comic sans ms (bold)
  • courier new (bold, italic, bold italic)
  • georgia (bold, italic, bold italic)
  • impact
  • times new roman (bold, italic, bold italic)
  • trebuchet (bold, italic, bold italic)
  • verdana (bold, italic, bold italic)
  • webdings

When would I need it?

Any time you experience missing text in an application, this would be the first place you would want to start. This is usually installed by default, though. If this does not work, try tahoma or tahoma2 from the Install Components tab, as those are the usual suspects in such acts of font thievery.

crypt32

What is it?

crypt32 does quite a few things relating to decrypting/encrypting data. Basic information in the links below.

What does it do?

"It supports encryption, decryption, and manipulation of certificates and related data structures."

from http://wiki.winehq.org/Crypt32

When would I need it?

Most of this is taken care of within Wine via the builtin dll. You may run into times when the native dll is needed, in which case the POL debug log will spit out an error saying that it tried to do something with it and it failed (like unhandled exception or cannot find crypt32.dll, etc.). If you do happen to run into an error like this, we highly encourage you to report it to https://appdb.winehq.org so that the community there can possibly implement a fix that is native to Wine, eliminating the need for the actual Windows dll.

POL_Call POL_Install_crypt32

steam

What is it?

An installer for the game publishing platform Steam.

What does it do?

Downloads and Installs Steam client.

What is it?

A helper script for Steam.

What does it do?

Set registry third-party flags to avoid steam installing them at the game's first launch.

When would I need it?

To avoid Steam reinstalling POL-installed dependencies (Wine sometimes requires some wizardry to get things working that the stock installers do not do, and can cause the application not to run if the workaround is overwritten or broken by the default installation being triggered by the Steam client.).

Script/Shell command:

POL_Call POL_Install_steam_flags

wineasio

What is it?

WineASIO provides an ASIO driver interface from Wine to jack for low-latency audio and advanced audio/MIDI routing.

  • Makes sure that the user is part of the audio group
  • Confirms the presence of jack and qjackctl

Then, if all checks pass, WineASIO is downloaded and registered into that virtual drive.

When would I need it?
