Question 2 WINE questions on Ubuntu Karmic.

Hello all.

I downloaded a Windows program that I know will work in WINE. I have to blacklist a few servers in order for me to use it properly (don't ask), and the program that I downloaded comes bundled with a DOS Batch file that automated that process. I was wondering if I could just run the batch file, or do I have to do something in WINE, or something in Ubuntu?

Then I have to replace a few .dll's (Windoze Dynamic-Link Libraries) with another set of .dll's after it is installed. Can I do this without harming my installation?

Thanks ~ leopard

If you speak about Ubuntu i don't think you could have any problem, while if you speak about windows, i think that if you use most recent version of this OS probably you can have problem (or at least more problem that in the past) if you play with dll.
So i think will be better avoid similar change.

I'm not sure if you know already, but to run a batch file properly use "wineconsole file.bat". That will run a virtual 32 dos environment in wine.

You can add dll's no problem but replacing them with the ones wine provides? That can be risky. Sometimes certain libraries can be installed through MS's site.

I had a Visual C dynamic library requirement on the last World of Warcraft update that stopped it from working. After googling a bit, I tried to get the proper files from my Vista (yuck) partition but that didn't help. Finally I found a link directly to the install file from MS's site to install the C library and it worked properly. I'm not sure if thats of any help but just giving you a bit of information on it. Also you can look at Wine-Doors. You can goto their homepage and download the latest version (Not the stable, the latest). and get many Windows systems set up for your wine. This sometimes helps with certain things.



batch, cmd, dll, dos, wine, wineinstall
