Hi, I just got it run on my linux laptop, with u-center 8.26. The problem "only windows vista or above supported" is probably because that wine is not configured to support Windows OS above XP, and your u-center version doesn't support WinXP as it's too old..
Try the following command:
This is the wine configuration command. Unter Application Tab, change default XP to Win10, for example. Make sure you installed the newest version of wine.
Besides, I find it out that u-center 8.26 is much more stable than u-center 8.16. U-center 8.16 crashes upon opening packet console, binary console or test console.
I've written a post explaning how I managed this. See the following link:
