Please note that this toptic only relates to running miniMRP on Linux and Apple/Mac machines in the WINE environment. If you're an MS Windows user don't read it.

Bottles //usebottles.com/ is an environment for running windows applications in linux. Unfortunately i'm still not experienced enough to get MiniMRP running correctly, but it seems "really close". I think i just have a problem with sandboxing.
Wondering if anyone has any experience to share about this, or wants to try and share their learnings.

The error i get while trying to "Test and Save the Connection" is
IErrorInfo.GetDescription failed with E_FAIL(0x80004005)

@ig. Are you the same person (Guest) who posted the Linux-Bottles question? I mean is that error occurring in Linux?

The question about Linux-Bottles.
I suppose it's just terminology but I prefer to think of the environment for running windows application in linux as "WINE". (not bottle)
A "Bottle" (as in WINE Bottle) is a method whereby a 'bundle of programs including WINE, The windows application and dependencies, are all collected together and 'Bottled' as a single unit. The idea being that it makes it easier to deploy the whole bundle to other users.
I must confess that we never tested MiniMRP in a bottle so have no idea how to bottle it.
I would suggest first running it in WINE (not in a bottle). Go to the WINE website and search for MiniMRP. The page explains how to install and run in WINE.

Here's an extract from an older thread.
Running in WINE. Main thing to remember is to install in a 32bit prefix. It does actually work in a 64bit prefix but needs a little fiddling with Jet40. Much simpler to create a dedicated 32bit folder for MiniMRP.
For Linux here's the install steps (I assume you have wine and winetricks already installed)
# Using terminal Create a dedicated 32bit prefix for MiniMRP with this command
WINEARCH=win32 WINEPRFIX=~/.minimrp winecfg
# That sets up the folder and opens wine config. See that applications tab is showing Windows 7 and close it.
# Then run winetricks to install the dotnet framework and jet40 like this:
