General :: Get A Windows Compiled Program To Work Through Wine?

May 28, 2010

I'm currently trying to get a windows compiled program to work through Wine to run on Linux and MacOSX.

When I run the program through wine, it prompts me to install Gecko which I do. Later on in the program, it attempts to use MSHTML to render HTML but I get these error messages on my console instead.

err:mshtml:init_xpcom NS_InitXPCOM2 failed: 80004005
err:mshtml:HTMLDocument_Create Failed to init Gecko, returning CLASS_E_CLASSNOTAVAILABLE
fixme:ole:CoCreateInstance no instance created for interface {00000000-0000-0000-c000-000000000046} of class {25336920-03f9-11cf-8fd0-00aa00686f13}, hres is 0x80040111

I'm using Wine 1.1.34 and a similar bug was supposedly fixed in 1.1.33 [URL]

General :: Wine On Slackware 64-bit - Run A Windows Program (with Multilib Files)

Jul 19, 2011

I know the subject title makes it seem like this should be something on the Slackware forums but I think it can be generalized to other 64-bit Linux operating systems which is why I ask here. I'm running Slackware 13.37 64-bit and was wondering if I use Wine to run a Windows program (with multilib files), would it still run as if it had been used on a 64-bit computer?

Ubuntu :: Installing Windows Program Using Wine

Nov 27, 2009

I installed Wine no problem. Then I downloaded a Windows Chess program(ECTool) to the desktop. I right clicked on the ECTool icon and checked run with Wine. The program came up just fine and I could make moves on the chessboard, but no information was saved. I got a blank screen under games in progress. Anyone use this program or have any ideas what to do next? ECTool is listed as a program that works with Wine.

Ubuntu Installation :: Wine Program Requires Mono For Windows?

Feb 8, 2011

I am trying to install a program named "Ntrip" with wine, running Linux Mint 10 64bit (based on Ubuntu 10.04) I installed the software without problems, when I try to start it I get the following error:


fixme:actctx:parse_manifest_buffer root element is L"asmv1:assembly", not <assembly>
wine: Install the Windows version of Mono to run .NET executables

As far as I know, mono is by default on every Ubuntu 10.04 installation, however as per the error message, I installed the Windows version of Mono via Wine successfully. Trying to start the program again, still coming up with above error.

Fedora :: Remove Wine And Wine Installed Program?

Nov 19, 2010

I am new to fedora and installed wine to see if I could get the sony reader software working (required to access sony bookstore from my sony ereader). Well the program did not work though it did create icons on my desktop. wine kept crashing and I said lets just get rid of it. I uninstalled wine via yum remove and nothing appeared to happen so I did rpm -qa |grep wine and saw lots of stuff. So I simply did yum remove wine* and then a rpm -qa |grep wine was empty. however wine is still under applications on my desktop and still has a category for programs--reader. I should also mention that while wine was installed I attempted to remove the reader via the wine uninstalller but a) wine gave a message of a core crash and b) all the uninstaller did was give me the option to reinstall the reader program. so now when I attempt to open an epub it tries with the sony reader software. I know I can just right click to use another program but for now I want wine gone completely from my pc and the sony program gone.

General :: Program Installed With Wine Isn't Found Anywhere

Jun 11, 2010

I installed a game (Shredder 11) using Wine on my Ubuntu system. The installation seemed to go well, including the directx part, but when I want to run the game, I can't find it anywhere. It's not in Applications -> Wine, it's not on Wine's C: drive, and I even tried a search "find / -name shredder", which came up empty. I tried to install it again, but according to the installation program it is already installed! (It asked me if I wanted to modify, repair, etc..).

I've looked through the various config files in ~home and /usr/share/wine, and can't find any parameter that might even remotely address this.

A friend of mine is setting up infrastructure for a new call centre and they are using Ubuntu Linux on staff desktops. They need a chat program that will only work on the local network, and they want to allow staff to only access a browser, the chat client and spreadsheet software.

(a) What chat program can they use, and

(b) How can one disactivate most of the programs running on the desktop? Is uninstalling via synaptic/ Ubuntu Software Centre overkill?

Programming :: Select() Call Does Not Detect Data In Pipe Between Parent And Child Program

Sep 23, 2009

i wanted to capture the stdout and stdin of a child process within a parent so that any output of child is sent to the parent and any input taken from the parent. code is simple enough and i have followed all code guidlines on the internet (some guidlines do differ also) my select call either hangs if i do not give a tmeout and with a timeout it returns 0 descriptors to be written to or read from:

below is the simple code for parent:

int main(void)
int outfd[2];
int infd[2];


why select hangs without a timeout ... why can it not detect that the pipe is write ready i.e parent can write to it ... if it does not detect tha read pipe as having data...

General :: Not Able To Open Windows EXE File Using Wine

Feb 9, 2011

I'm doing so because my doubt is with regards to running a windows app in linux. I am a freelance writer and use article spinning software like "TheBestSpinner" occasionally. Usually I log into windows XP (I have a dual boot) for this. I am however trying to see if it is possible for me to run this software in linux using wine. I am still relatively a newbie in linux as I have been using Mint 10 for only 6 months. I'm am familiar with the command line but generally use the GUI mostly. I installed the software but when I tried to run the .exe file I got an error that said that I had to install mono for windows. I did that too and installed it inside wine. I am now getting an error that I am unable to resolve by myself because google is not helping me. I am posting the output of what I get when I try running it below.

fixme:system:SetProcessDPIAware stub!
fixme:dwmapiwmIsCompositionEnabled 0x33bc74

General :: Missing Windows Class In Wine - Fedora 12?

Sep 13, 2010

I am having a problem trying to install KindleForPc with wine in Fedora 12. Wine installs and runs but is missing a class needed by Kindle. Notepad, regedit, etc run but there is a problem when I run the Kindle Installer.Attempting to install Kindle I run

wine KindleForPc-installer.exe it runs to completion two windows appears they have a windows look, as it intiializes. Then it returns to the command line prompt. Shortly after it returns to the command line I get a series of error messages. Perhaps the installer finishes and then tries to start Kindle. I have typed their essence below:

fixme:system:SetProcessDPIAware stub!
class {6e4feb12-510a-4d40-9304-1da10ae9147c} not registered
no class server could be created for context 0x17

Kindle does not show up in the configuration utility and when I try to run it from the command line it complains that some classes are not registered. My understanding is that yum has a list of the component packages required by wine, and the person who prepared the list thought it had loaded all that was needed for wine, but it did not include the package that has the classes that I need. On the web there are a number of postings that tell how well Kindle works under Linux, and none of them deals with doing anything more than installing wine. I assume that in those cases the install procedure loaded the classes I need. My hope is that someone with more knowledge than I can give me a pointer on how to proceed.
