You need to install the WINE layer (sub-system) on those operating systems for TAD to work. Inside WINE, ensure that the MSScript controls and VBA are installed
  
-Unfortunately,​ the TAD **//​installer//​** does not work on those computersYou will need to first run installer ​on a friend'​s Windows machine; install it there -- and then transfer the installed TAD directory ​(Usually c:\program files(x86)\TAD Designer Lite\ to your Mac/Linux machine+TAD works quite well on ChromebooksHere is a screenshot ​on HP x360 12b (12“ version of their x360 seriesIt has 4 Gb RAM and supports a minimal version of Linux called “Crostini” ​
  
-We are searching ​for a proper resolution ​for this. +For this to work, your Chromebook MUST have this feature. So older Chromebooks may not work. Also, I think this will not work on non-Intel based Chromebook. That means, buy a Chromebook which is both Intel based (and not ARM based) as well as ensure it should have Linux capability along with the ChromeOS 
 + 
 +This may not work on "​ChromiumOS"​ version of the operating system. ChromiumOS works quite similarly to ChromeOS and in fact is the open-source version of ChromeOS -- but ChromiumOS does not have Android support 
 + 
 +In all these Operating Systems, basic concept is that you need to first install Wine and then Winetricks and then install the msscript control via winetricks.  
 + 
 +The steps needed ​for a Chromebook are as follows: 
 + 
 +**Step 1:** \\ 
 +Ensure that you use the Linux feature of your Chromebook. ​ For this to work, your Chromebook MUST have this feature. So older Chromebooks may not work. Also, I think this will not work on non-Intel based Chromebook. That means, buy a Chromebook which is both Intel based as well as ensure it is based on the Intel chipset and not anything else 
 + 
 +You would need to start the Linux terminal on your machine. The commands given below need to be typed inside that terminal window. //Note the characters $> just means that you need to type into the terminal window. It represents the "​prompt"​ there. So don't type $>// 
 + 
 + 
 +**Step 2:** \\ 
 +Install Wine, as also the 32 bit version of Wine 
 + 
 +Type these four commands one after another. Press ENTER after each 
 + 
 + 
 +<​code>​ 
 +$> sudo apt-get install wine 
 +$> sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386  
 +$> sudo apt-get update  
 +$> sudo apt-get install wine32 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +**Step 3:**\\  
 +Type these three commands to install a utility called winetricks. Press ENTER after each 
 + 
 +<​code>​ 
 +$> wget https://​raw.githubusercontent.com/​Winetricks/​winetricks/​master/​src/​winetricks 
 +$> chmod +x winetricks 
 +$> WINEARCH="​win32"​ WINEPREFIX="​$HOME/​wine-vb6"​ ./​winetricks vb6run mdac28 richtx32 comdlg32ocx comctl32ocx 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +**Step 4: **\\ 
 +Install a utiltity called cabextract by typing this. Press ENTER after typing: 
 + 
 +<​code>​ 
 +$> sudo apt-get install cabextract  
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +**Step 5:**\\ 
 +Install the MsScript contrul by typing this and pressing ENTER 
 +<​code>​ 
 +$> ./​winetricks msscript 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +**Step 6:**\\ 
 + You would need to install TAD. Register at www.teamtad.com/​regform.html ​ Then download the setup program from https://​tad.in.net/​tadsetup.zip Extract the contents of that into the terminal folder. Then type this command to unzip the folder 
 + 
 +<​code>​ 
 +$> unzip tadsetup.zip  
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +**Step 7:**\\ 
 + Run the installer ​for TAD. When you register, an install code would have been emailed to you. The installer would prompt you for it during the installation and you need to copy-paste it exactly; and also the email address. The install code is specific to the email address 
 + 
 +<​code>​ 
 +$>  wine tadsetup.exe 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +**Step 8:**\\ 
 + Run TAD Designer Lite by typing ​this and pressing ENTER 
 + 
 +<​code>​ 
 +$>  wine .wine/​drive_c/"​Program Files (x86)/TAD Designer Lite/​bin/​TADDesignerLite.exe"​ 
 +</​code>​ 
 + 
 +//Note: The above steps are to be done only once. When you want to run TAD again, you would need to do **only the last step**//
