Question Wine doesn't correctly work..


Hi,
I use Wine on Kubuntu 10.10.
Whenever some-application to open the Internet, wine browser is opened in loop untill I end process tree of wine server.
Also when I use it to execute .exe program I have error
e.g. I tried to run DriverGuide DriverScan:
Quote:
Component 'Codejock.DockingPane.v10.4.0.ocx' or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid

What kind of program are you trying to run? And how are you trying to run it?

As wcm.exe and DriverScan.exe
Firstly I mark it as executable program, and then click on it to be run.Most or .exe programs open several wine browser till I close it 'end process'.

May I ask why you try to run a program that tries to install Windows drivers in wine (DriverScan)? It is neither necessary nor recommended, if even possible. I searched Google for wcm.exe, and it seems to be a trojan, so I also would not recommend to run that. It may also be the WebCamMonitor program, I would think that you can find a similar program for Linux.

If you have troubles running programs in wine, you should look at the Wine Application Database for solutions.

You do know that DriverScan.exe from DriverGuide.com is a means to check for proper drivers on a M$ Windows OS. Why would you want to attempt to run a tool of that sort in WINE? What do you expect? I'll tell you what will result: NOTHING! WINE would not know how to handle requests from the program.

Do you even Google to check things out or just arbitrarily expect things to somehow meld? Mixing apples and oranges will get you fruit salad.

Driver Scanner scans for Windows drivers. They will not work with Linux. To get your webcam working, please open a new thread regarding this issue.
What do you mean with "wine browser"? Do you mean Internet Explorer? If so, to get rid of that open your Linux browser and set it as standard browser in its options.

TobiSGD,

Linux is Not Windows may help a bit to better understand things. You are not going to be able to run a program like DriverScan.exe on Gnu/Linux via WINE. As I stated before DriverScan.exe is a Microsoft Windows diagnostic program to check for drivers within a Microsoft Windows OS. If you read the banner at DriverGuide.com it is indicated as such.

I know several people, including myself have suggested that you Google to find information. Once that information is found you should read for understanding. If you fail to understand then ask.
