WINES’s handling of com ports flummoxed me. What
used to be a simple symbolic link became
something else indeed ver 2.8 and later. The
people at Codeweavers tried to help, but they
had instructions for Mac, which were different
enough that it didn’t work for me.
Needing my station up and running, I ended up
removing Mint and reinstalling Windows 8.1,
which is just too cruel! 8^)
When I’m not pressed for time, I’ll reinstall
mint and try again.
But you might have the secret sauce for getting
new versions of WINE to do the link?
Otherwise I might try again with an old version
