Error configuring Wine. Need help


I configured Wine with winecfg in the graphical interface. Did drives, apps, etc. Thought had got it all, but when trying to run a program, I found this:

macho@linux-wwtz:~> wine PowerISO.exe
wine: could not load L"c:\\windows\\system32\\PowerISO.exe": Module not found
macho@linux-wwtz:~>


What did I forget? and Can someone help me fix it?. Thanks for your help. I'm totally new to Linux and Wine.

Is PowerISO.exe in that particular directory (i.e. in ~)? If it isn't, then WINE will look in the mach Windows drive it creates in ~/.wine/drive_c/WINDOWS/system32, which is probably what's happening here.

Thanks a lot for your reply. The more I learn, the more ignorant I feel. Looks like Windows/system32 are not copied to ~/.wine.

macho@linux-wwtz:~> ls ~/.wine
dosdevices drive_c system.reg userdef.reg user.reg
macho@linux-wwtz:~>

I need a manual for newbies in wine. The ones I've found, assume I know too much already. Any recommendations I would appreciate very much. Is there something I can do with what I pasted above?. Up to now I configured the Path to C:\ in my Windows XP ( in another drive )>Program files>PowerISO>PowerISO.exe
Any guidance please?

We've all been there before; the more time you spend with Linux, the less ignorant you will become One of the ways I learn is by answering questions on this forum--it forces me to research topics like this

The WINDOWS\System32 folder should already be in ~/.wine (i.e. try ls -R ~/.wine); you'll probably want to copy over the DLLs from your Windows install, however.

As I recall, PowerISO has its own DLLs; that's what WINE is looking for, methinks. There should be a poweriso.dll file (or similar) in your Windows installation, located in C:\WINDOWS\system32. You will need to copy that over.

Also, you could use WINE to install PowerISO if you can find the PowerISO installer. Just launch the wine GUI (i.e. xwine) and look under the Start button. It'll do most of the dirty work for you

Don't expect too much from PowerISO, however. According to the WineDB (i.e. the list of programs that have been tried with WINE), no one has yet been able to get it to run . This doesn't mean that it won't work for you, however, but it may be more time than it's worth.

If you're just looking for some CD burning software that can burn ISOs in addition to sound and data, K3B is a pretty good program for that, and because it's Linux native, setting it up is far less of a hassle

Regarding a usable newbie manual for WINE, I'm afraid I don't know of any myself. The system is still under heavy development, and unless Microsoft becomes really generous soon and starts providing full documentation to their own API (which at the time of this writing does not exist outside of Redmond itself), then the devs are stuck spending their time reverse-engineering the MS DLLs rather than creating documentation

Hey, thanks a lot for that reply man, it's full of facts very useful to me. Just like you said ( I heard in another forum too ), I need to install the windows program with the setup.exe into wine and then wine creates its own directories. The thing about the dll's I had no idea though. Thanks again. I'll get back to you when I had tried everything that I have learned so far. ( one or two days ). P.S. I think k3b is great; the problem is with .daa files, that's where PowerIso comes into play. Otherwise PowerISO is a pain in the ass. To tell you the truth, I left Windows about 3 weeks ago and I'm not looking back. I have all I need in Linux Suse 10.2, and more. I hate going back, that's why I'm trying to have PowerISO work in Suse.

I did make wine work. It was a matter of following the trail. /.wine did show up whith all the exe's in it after install and config. PowerIso did not work, but some other apps did. I also found out I could make ISO's with mkisofs. So, I'm all set. Thanks a lot.
