Everything appears to go well, untill the application is actually launched and it hangs on the splash screen without the progress bar advancing (it doesn't even start) This leaves a rectangular area on all my desktops unresponsive. So I tried to install the registration program. That also went fine, untill the actual program is again launched. This time the splash screen's progress bar advancess untill it says "scanning file filters... " and hangs again. Also it doesn't seem to have recognised the registration which worked perfectly in WIndows. The only way I know to kill the splash screen is logging out and back in again. Unfortunately there is no further info at eithar winehq or Frank's Corner and google hasn't given me the answer yet. Has anyone succesfully installed CoolEdit Pro, and if so, can you give me any hints?

What are you doing to launch Wine? Are you using a command line (Bash, etc) or are you right-clicking the exe and selecting Wine ? The command line works best. Try using a full path for the exe: wine /path/to/file.exe or wine C:\\path\\to\\file.exe

I really appreciate your offer, but I was away for a couple of days. Anyway, here goes. I had only tried to start the application by couble-clicking the desktop icon it created, and it never occurred to me to use the command line (stupid!!). So then I did: $wine "C:\Program Files\coolpro2\coolpro2.exe" fixme:font:load_VDMX No suitable ratio found fixme:font:load_VDMX No suitable ratio found Windows opens : Cool Edit Pro 2.00 - Trial Version Choose "buy now", or "keep evaluating" fixme:bitblt:X11DRV_BitBlt potential optimization - client-side DIB copy fixmerocess:SetProcessWorkingSetSize (0xffffffff,8912896,17301504): stub - har mless err:module:import_dll Library HID.DLL (which is needed by L"C:\\Program Files\\c oolpro2\\Redrover.cdv") not found err:module:import_dll Library WMVCore2.DLL (which is needed by L"C:\\Program Fil es\\coolpro2\\wma2.flt") not found Then I did ctrl+c and the program exited (without having to log out and in). So I went to my win installation and copied both to the wine windows system folder:$ cp /mnt/windows/c/windows/system/hid.dll ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system/ $cp /mnt/windows/c/windows/system/wmvcore2.dll ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system/ I tried to run the program again. This time I got to the point where the "Resetting Menus" progress bar proceeds to the end, and then the application hung again. Code: $ wine "C:\Program Files\coolpro2\coolpro2.exe" fixme:font:load_VDMX No suitable ratio found err:x11drv:X11DRV_CreateWindow invalid window width -6 err:x11drv:X11DRV_CreateWindow invalid window width -5 fixme:bitblt:X11DRV_BitBlt potential optimization - client-side DIB copy fixme:bitblt:X11DRV_BitBlt potential optimization - client-side DIB copy ## some 20 times fixme:process:SetProcessWorkingSetSize (0xffffffff,8912896,17301504): stub - harmless fixme:setupapi:SetupDiGetClassDevsA {4d1e55b2-f16f-11cf-88cb-001111000030} (null) (nil) 00000012 fixme:setupapi:SetupDiEnumDeviceInterfaces fixme:setupapi:SetupDiDestroyDeviceInfoList 0xffffffff I tried adding Code: ;Cool Edit Pro 2.00 [AppDefaults\\collpro2exe\\DllOverrides] "hid.dll" = "native" "wmvcore2.dll" = "native" to the wine config file, but that didn't change anything. Output didn't change. Where do I go from here?

Considering a window is being made with a negative width, maybe Wine's desktop or unmanaged mode would allow it to run.

 03-05-2005, 01:27 PM #7 RodimusProblem Member   Registered: Dec 2004 Distribution: Knoppix 3.6 Posts: 135 Rep: Wine can run Windows software in one of 3 compatability modes. 1. Managed In this mode, the Windows program is meshed with the Linux GUI as close as possible. 2. Unmanaged In this mode, Wine tries to run the program as close to Windows as possible, but there's a better chance for conflicts or errors with the Linux GUI. 3. Desktop In this mode Wine creates a native Linux window to run the Windows program in. This method is sometimes more useful than the others as the Windows program is not pretending to be a Linux GUI program -- it's just drawn on a native Linux window. Add these 2 lines to the program's entry in the .wine/config file to use the Desktop mode: Code: "Desktop" = "640x480" "Managed" = "N" The "creating a window with negative width" comment was based on one of the errors in the post: err:x11drv:X11DRV_CreateWindow invalid window width -6

If you need a more complex audio mixing program use Ardour. Using WINE is a pain. If you can install Internet Explorer or Office, then you should not have any problems installing and running Windows programs under WINE. Use winetools to help you configure WINE better.

I'm still adapting to it, but will look into the plu-in thing (hadn't seen that). After some trying it looks like it might suit my needs and maybe the plug-ins will fill the gaps I find. As for Wine, it really is a pain, but I have succesfully installed IE6 (not that I plan to use it, but to learn how it works, and in case it is needed by the encyclopedia I still need to install. Still looking into getting word to run. Open office is very nice, but also very, very slow. Don't know ardour, but I've read something about it at CCRMA. There's a lot of stuff there about dependencies and low latency kernels. Will need some time to look into.

(on ubuntu 11.04 / wine 1.3.15) it seems that the hang-up comes from checking the directX plugins. that can easily be verified by trying to do that once cooledit runs (it halts at 97%). im not using them so i dont bother investigating this. however, installing the update skips the directX scanning. there might be a way to tweak the .ini or whatever so the 2.0 doesnt try to scan for plugins. other thing: there seems to be an issue in multitrack mode, when (actually quite interesting) noise is coming off the speakers. -> try limiting to 16-bit output in device properties.

I have been trying to figure out how to get CEP to work in linux for some years now & it appears your solution is what works, at least so far. I haven't tried recording with it yet but at the very least but it should work. This is great. Audacity sucks so bad and as for Ardour, I've never been able to get the JACK thing going with it. This is great.
