starting out on wine tips


OK, so the how-to on wine's website is great at explaining on how to install a program and have it run on wine. The thing is, I want to run programs that have already been installed on my Windows partition.

Whenever I try to run a program, it complains about dll's not being there for it to run, even though they are in the same folder

I do a command like so:
Code:
%wine "/mnt/Windows/Program Files/Microsoft Money/System/msmoney.exe"
err:module:import_dll Library MFC42.DLL (which is needed by L"D:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Money\\System\\msmoney.exe") not found
err:module:import_dll Library MFC42.DLL (which is needed by L"D:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Money\\System\\mnyxml.dll") not found
err:module:import_dll Library mnyxml.dll (which is needed by L"D:\\Program Files\\Microsoft Money\\System\\msmoney.exe") not found
... so on
So what do I do?

The problem is probably that Wine is trying to look for the DLLs somewhere where they aren't. Run winecfg and see if you can do something there, or if you want, read trough the three .reg files (especially system.reg) under your home directory:
Code:
cd ~/.wine
less system.reg
less userdef.reg
less user.reg
I believe the needed stuff is in system.reg or can be controlled using winecfg (which is just a graphical way to do it). Maybe you should point that for that program the DLLs should be searched from the mounted Windows partition's windows\system32 directory, or the directory where the DLLs are. I'm not a big Wine user, just run some programs at times, and try to keep out from configuring Wine; it's simple, but I don't like to consume time with it

OK, I'll look into that. I don't plan on spending too much time with Wine either, just for Microsoft Money, it's export doesn't work with KMoney's importer
