WINE with external device help

I’m trying to connect a blood-glucose meter through WINE.
Can’t get it to find device. All the manufacturer has are apps for mobiles, Windoze and Mac.

Kernel: 4.19.0-9-amd64 x86_64 bits: 64 compiler: gcc v: 8.3.0 Desktop: Cinnamon 4.4.8 wm: muffin dm: LightDM Distro: LMDE 4 Debbie base: Debian 10.2 buster

Wish I could help but I also have issuers with WINE on Mint.
I was told I’ll need a 32 bit installation for 32bit software.
Your problem may be similar as I see you have x86 64 bit.
I have grown to hate windows for it’s sloppy programming and the people who continue to program only for windoze.

I know what you mean. The app is the newest release the manufacturer has, and it’s for 64 bit.

If wine won’t cooperate, then maybe try

or virtualbox with a Windows guest

Thanks but no thanks. Windoze screwed me over royally more than a decade ago on XP, then they did nearly the same with my wife on Vista. I will not consider using that overgrown virus for anything.
We both switched to Linux back then and we won’t go back.

I agree what you say. Saw this, hope you keep well

Yo Ho Ho! And a bottle o’ Rum! That looks great. I’ll dig into this and see what I can come up with. Thanks sooo much!
