Global DLL's in WINE


Hello, I have a program created in Visual Basic, (Pretty simple program) and runs fine under WINE. However, it requires putting Msvbvm50.dll in there. This is fine, I put it under ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32 and all is good. But the reason I am testing this is because I need to implement it in system that has 500+ users, and putting that dll into everyones directory would be more than out of the question. So what I am trying to do is put that dll into the system globally so that when a user launches "wine vbprogram.exe" and creates their ~/.wine directory, that dll will be in there automatically. This is on a SUSE system and what Ive tried so far is putting that Msvbvm50.dll into /usr/lib/wine and modifying /usr/share/wine/wine.inf to have that dll under the "Fake DLL's" section with no luck so far. Any help would certainly be appreciated.
Thank You!!

A quick update to this...Ive been playing around with it a bit....and by doing the above, after looking, it does put that dll in the proper place (~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32) However when I run the app, I get the error "err:module:import_dll Library MSVBVM50.DLL (which is needed by L"Y:\\Desktop\\Program.exe") not found" Even though its in there. Any ideas???
Thanks!!

Put msvbm50.dll in your app's installer!

Your application's installer should include msvbm50.dll.
That solves the problem nicely.

Well its not really an installer....its more of a interactive popup window that writes a txt file for the user according to the what they input in the feilds. Im not even familiar with Visual Basic, in fact, one of my co-workers made the program, but will ask him if he could somehow incorporate that dll into his program. Thanks for the reply.

I realize that vbasic is not meant for the gifted, but since this program is supposed to be simple, why not find a native solution?

Perharps you can share what you want to do and can be helped accordingly.

WINE can work with symbolic links. Setup an SNFS server, so all 500+ computers can access the require dll files.

Use JAVA or PERL to create a GUI program very fast.

If your co-worker only knows Visual Basic, give him or her REALbasic or HBasic.

Thanks for all the responses! Got a hold of RealBasic, and it worked perfectly! WINE is cool and all, but nothing like running things Natively.
Thanks again
