Hi there. I am trying to install Office 2000. I have went to franks and got the install info I need but I keep getting the error above. I really want to get wine running to say I did. Is there a step by step instructions out there that I could get? I am lost
hmmm, you could try an application which works easy with wine first to make sure it works. Try TextPad or something . I'd like to help you with Office, but since I failed miserable installing Office 2000, I won't suggest anything .ghehe
Megaman X ---"1 - Tell us what you are trying to install. Because there could be either a Linux alternative which is always better then using wine or:"
Would you have one for Medal of Honor-Allied Assault? I tried wine myself and had no luck with it. I read about WineX, but i don't play enough games to spend money downloading it, and yes, i know it can be built, but don't really feel like taking the time for just one game.
I dont mind paying, but I just wanted to see if I can get wine to work. Yet I have not. If codeweavers would send me the link to download the trial maybe I would buy it but it has been days and no response. Everyone else has luck with wine, but I cant seem to get it working. all I do is keep getting this error
ok first thing i suggest is what i am going to say below, cause i read this thread, and everything doesn't seem to be making sense ... so this is what i suggest to you :
remove abosolutely everything on your computer wine related, and download a new copy, and extract the source to your home folder ... when you do that, run the file called "wineinstall" located in the tools folder inside the extracted wine folder ..
just follow the directions and in the end you should have wine completely set up, and with a working fake windows drive ... then hop over to frankscorner and follow instructions for Office2K
as of codeweavers, the best i can mention about this is to : go here and grab an older copy of cw-wine and give it a try .... they are from years 2001 - 2002 .. only 2001 for tarballs ..
and as of winex if you wanna try it, you do the following ....
-) open up a terminal
-) cvs -d:pserver:firstname.lastname@example.org:/cvsroot login
-) When prompted for the password enter "cvs"
-) cvs -z3 -d:pserver:email@example.com:/cvsroot co winex
the copy that you get when you download from here, is the latest version of winex, but the only catch is you don't get the support like you would if you payed for it .. you just get no support by using the cvs version ..
and then same as regular wine, to make it easy on you go into the tools sub-folder within the winex folder and run "wineinstall"
