Another wine question!!!!


hi,

morning! last night, i have installed wine-20030618 for RH9. then, after the configuration have done. i invoked Microsoft Office XP winword.exe, which had been installed in my Windows XP (i have dual boot os) long time ago. nice! wine has been working with ms office. then, it took a couple of seconds to load winword, where i can see the splash screen was shown out. the weird thing is that, in the splash screen, i saw "Unknown User" and "Uninstalled version".
then, after winword was loaded successfully. so, i started to use it. after a couple of typing, it prompted me a message box,
"Microsoft word has not been installed for the current user. Please run setup to install application". i had no choice but, click the OK button. then, the whole winword was aborted.

Also, my WinZip, previously was a registered version in windows XP platform. now, i use wine to invoke it. now, it becomes a unregistered version, with unknown user.

what is the error actually? how do i overcome this! pls advise. thanks.

here is my config file

WINE REGISTRY Version 2
;; All keys relative to \\Machine\\Software\\Wine\\Wine\\Config

;;
;; MS-DOS drives configuration
;;
;; Each section has the following format:
;; [Drive X]
;; "Path"="xxx" (Unix path for drive root)
;; "Type"="xxx" (supported types are 'floppy', 'hd', 'cdrom' and 'network')
;; "Label"="xxx" (drive label, at most 11 characters)
;; "Serial"="xxx" (serial number, 8 characters hexadecimal number)
;; "Filesystem"="xxx" (supported types are 'msdos'/'dos'/'fat', 'win95'/'vfat', 'unix')
;; This is the FS Wine is supposed to emulate on a certain
;; directory structure.
;; Recommended:
;; - "win95" for ext2fs, VFAT and FAT32
;; - "msdos" for FAT16 (ugly, upgrading to VFAT driver strongly recommended)
;; DON'T use "unix" unless you intend to port programs using Winelib !
;; "Device"="/dev/xx" (only if you want to allow raw device access)

Also, i have do the winecheck

This script verifies the configuration of the whole Wine environment.
Note that this is an ALPHA version, and thus it doesn't catch all problems !
The results of the checks are printed on the right side:
OK - test passed without problems.
NOTICE - Not a problem but something for the user to be aware of.
SUSPICIOUS - potentially problematic. You might want to look into that.
BAD - This is a problem, and it leads to configuration score penalty.
CRITICAL - A critical problem which can easily lead to malfunction.
FAILED - This problem leads to Wine failure almost certainly.

The result will be printed as a percentage score indicating config completeness.


------------------------- checking miscellaneous stuff -------------------------
001. Checking for root user... BAD (running as root might be insecure/problematic.).
- ADVICE: don't run Wine as root unless you know what you're doing.

--------------------------- checking Wine base files ---------------------------
002. Checking for file "wine"... OK.
003. Checking for correct .so lib config (please wait)... OK.

----------------------------- checking config file -----------------------------
004. Checking config file access... OK.

>>> Checking drive A settings:
005. Checking Path option... OK.
006. Checking Type option... OK.
007. Checking device /dev/fd0... OK.
--> OK.

>>> Checking drive C settings:
008. Checking Path option... OK.
009. Checking Type option... OK.
010. Checking device /dev/hda1... OK.
011. Checking Filesystem option... OK.
--> OK.

>>> Checking drive D settings:
012. Checking Path option... OK.
013. Checking Type option... OK.
014. Checking device /dev/hda6... OK.
--> OK.

>>> Checking drive E settings:
015. Checking Path option... OK.
016. Checking Type option... OK.
017. Checking device /dev/hda5... OK.
018. Checking Filesystem option... OK.
--> OK.

>>> Checking drive M settings:
019. Checking Path option... OK.
020. Checking Type option... OK.
021. Checking device /dev/hdc... OK.
--> OK.

>>> Checking drive N settings:
022. Checking Path option... OK.
023. Checking Type option... OK.
024. Checking device /dev/scd0... OK.
--> OK.

>>> Checking drive X settings:
025. Checking Path option... OK.
026. Checking Type option... OK.
--> OK.

>>> Checking drive Y settings:
027. Checking Path option... OK.
028. Checking Type option... OK.
--> OK.

--------------------- checking system devices used by Wine ---------------------
029. Checking sound device /dev/dsp... OK.
030. Checking audio mixer device /dev/mixer... OK.
031. Checking MIDI sequencer device /dev/sequencer... OK.

----------------------- checking registry configuration ------------------------
032. Checking availability of winedefault.reg entries... OK.
033. Checking availability of windows registry entries... NOTICE (entry "Default Taskbar" not found).
- ADVICE: A Windows registry does not seem to have been added to Wine as this typical Windows registry entry does not exist in Wine's registry. A complete original Windows registry entry set will *not* be available with a no-windows install. Usually this will present no problem in running applications although this can affect newer programs.

33 tests. 0 suspicious, 1 bad, 0 critical, 0 failed.
Wine configuration correctness score: 95.00%

its because you are running these products off the window partition, and thats why its better to run these things threw the wine fake drive...when you running these things off a windows partition, it can't read the real windows registry entries and other stuff that will have this info stored such as the users and the registration info..

and then, when i go to the microsoft office directory and invoke the winword.exe. it yields to me a message as such

When you are running a native NT directory specify "Profile=<profiledirectory>" or disable loading of windows registry

yes, use Wine to install a new copy of Office into your fake windows directory, the registry would work fine then.

BTW, Open Office.org and Ark are great replacements for Office and WinZip
