Please help installing Flash MX on Wine


Hi,

As the tutorial and some forum posts on Frankscorner.org's site said, I installed DCOM95 and DCOM98 in wine before running the INstallShield installer for Flash MX (both Flash MX and Flash MX 2004). The installer runs, but it doesn't work correctly in that when I am presented with the standard installer dialog of where I want to install the application, it shows "\Macromedia\Flash MX" as the default directory (no C. When I click the Next button, it (the setup program, not wine) says there is not enough space left on C: to install (although I have 46GB free). When I click browse, to install it elsewhere, it gives me the same error even though it now says "C:\" as the directory.

I am running it with:
WINEDLLOVERRIDES="ole32,oleaut32,rpcrt4=n" wine flashmx_trial_en.exe
but I have tried different combinations of those as well, to no avail.

Any suggestions on where to go from here? Thanks.

Also, here are a few sections from my wine config that may be useful:

Quote:
[Drive C]
"Path" = "%HOME%/.wine/fake_windows"
"Type" = "hd"
"Label" = "MS-DOS"
"Filesystem" = "win95"

[wine]
"Windows" = "c:\\Windows"
"System" = "c:\\Windows\\System"
"Temp" = "f:\\"
"Path" = "c:\\Windows;c:\\Windows\\System;f:\\;h:\\;z:\\"
"Profile" = "c:\\Windows\\Profiles\\Administrator"
"GraphicsDriver" = "x11drv"
; Wine doesn't pass directory symlinks to Windows programs by default.
; Enabling this may crash some programs that do recursive lookups of a whole
; subdir tree in case of a symlink pointing back to itself.
;"ShowDirSymlinks" = "1"
"ShellLinker" = "wineshelllink"
I am using Wine 20031118.

I think you miss some entries in your registry files, namely Applications Folder and similar. Have you imported the base system .reg file? It's shipped in the source tarball, name is winedefault.reg (if i remember well).
