Unhappy Getting no help at all, Flash MX 2004, Wine.


I have the latest version of wine installed and DCOM95 installed on it (needed to run the flash install).

Warning
Macromedia Flash MX 2004 is not supported on this operating system.
Please refer to the release notes for supported operating system.


The release notes say this:
Starting with this release, Flash MX 2004 and Flash MX Professional no longer support Windows Me, Windows NT, Macintosh OS 9, or OS X 10.2.5 or earlier. For more information, see the Flash MX 2004 and Flash MX Professional 2004 system requirements.

The system requierments suprisingly say that thay do support Win98SE though the release notes say something completely diffrent.

But since the error says that the operating system is not supported I take it as they dedect wine as 9*/ME.

Since Flash MX supports Win 9*/ME I belive that will work, so what I think I need is just that version of the program.

I have googled and posted here two times, posted on varios other places, no one even replies to my message, I AM DESPERADE, I have seen Flash MX work on Linux before, I just need the file so I can install it! HELP!!

why don't you just try to edit your wine's config so that it emulates some different windows version, say 2k or xp?

I'm to much of a newbie to ever think of that.
Well I edited the config file like this.

;"Windows" = "winxp"

I also tryed win2k, but I still get the same warning message..

I have cross over office installed also, does it maybe 'take over' the wine comand in the concole? To install flash I write.

wine Install_Flash_MX_2004.exe

The ";" character at the starting of that line "Windows" = "winxp" makes the line a comment. Any line beginning with a semicolon ";" will be ignored by wine.

remove the ";", make sure that there are NOT TWO lines that say "Windows" = "something", if there are two, comment one out by adding ";" in front.

save the config file and try again.

here's the section from my wine's config to make this more clear

[Version]
; Windows version to imitate win95,win98,winme,nt351,nt40,win2k,winxp,win2k3,win20,win30,win31)
"Windows" = "winxp"
; DOS version to imitate
"DOS" = "6.22"

you see there like Avatar said, two lines that start with ; and as you see, they explain things - that's what comments are meant to do. the lines that do _not_ start with ; are the actual "settings". so follow Avatar's advice, and first look this section for a "Windows" = -line that is not commented and only if you don't find one, then remove the semicolon in front of your

;"Windows" = "winxp"

line so it'll look like this:

"Windows" = "winxp"

after saving it should act as a winxp and not 9x.

no, any app can't "take over" wine commands when you start an app with a command like "wine appname.exe" it means you run Wine, and wine runs the app, and no other app does anything for that

EDIT: no, flash itself does NOT run under linux. it runs under Wine, ("Wine Is Not an Emulator") because running 'under wine' makes it think it runs under windows. as they say, wine is a collection of apis etc. that simulate a windows-environment so that some apps may work with it...

this doesn't mean that wine runs every app designed for windows...not at all. but some, yes check www.winehq.org for more details on it..

Flash MX 2004 does NOT work with the current WINE release, same goes for Dreamweaver, use Flash MX (not 2004), that will work just fine.
