It installed just fine, but fails to run with a DLL issue. Hopefully with some investigation, the WINE gods can figure out the cause.

Is it now?
Hmm, then I must have been playing instead of working here in the office - it's been two years since I switched my laptop over. Thanks for letting me know; it's a good thing they haven't fired me.
A very easy solution is to have all phones sold in US preconfigured to be subscribed a specific cell broadcast topic. If you don't want the alerts just unsubscribe with the phone's standard interface.
Yep, that's essentially what this does. There are thirty topics reserved just for CMAS alerts. Phones will come pre-subscribed to some of those. The main difference here is that the "standard" CBS application isn't used to handle messages received on these topics. The reason is because there are some specific actions the phone must take when receiving these messages - playing a tone, vibra, etc.
But there's no real reason why an old phone which supports generic CBS couldn't receive the alerts, if it was subscribed to them. Part of the problem is that some phone makers limited the range of topic ids you can subscribe to using the UI, and the CMAS topics are outside of that range.
No need for a special chip (oooh, I forgot that someone has to pay for the personal planes of large companies and decision makers).
As I said in another post, this "special chip" stuff is completely bogus. I have no idea where the article got that from. On the phone-side of things, you only need CBS support in the cell modem (which should already be there) and a CMAS application (just software).
