Updating my VIA 52 from Linux worked via VirtualBox

I just updated my VIA 52 by means of Windows 10 64 bit (from microsoft.com) running in VirtualBox 6.0.8 on Linux Mint 19.1.

The information from this thread was my primary source.

sudo adduser $USER vboxusers
sudo groupadd usbusers
sudo adduser $USER usbusers

Adding the following lines to /etc/udev/rules.d/40-permissions.rules:

# USB devices (usbfs replacement)
SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", GROUP="usbusers", MODE="0664"

Logging on logging off.

Adding the Navi as a USB device in VirtualBox.

You might have to switch the navi off and on if there a connectivity issues in MyDrive. And some patience.

    Is there any way to use Wine, with a copy of Windows?

    Make that "without a copy of Windows."
