I just installed wine-20030813 on a Debian linux system (version 2.4.18).
The program I want to run under wine seems to run OK, but when I use one option which is suposed to unpack the contents of a file using pkunzip and add them to a database, wine gives the error
Warning: unprotecting the first 64KB of memory to allow real-mode calls.
NULL pointer accesses will no longer be caught.
OSVM_Loop MsgWaitForMultipleObjects returned unexpected value.
and the program hangs for a while and then fails to unpack the files.
If I check the processes that are running using ps, I find there is a process
wine winevdm.exe --app-name C:\PKUNZIP.EXE C:\pkunzip.exe -o c:\update.fil
This seems to be the problem - wine is interpreting these options rather than pkunzip.exe.
If I run the command line
wine -- winevdm.exe --app-name C:\PKUNZIP.EXE C:\pkunzip.exe -o c:\update.fil
to force the options to be passed to winevdm.exe then everything unpacks OK.
But how can I get the windows program running under wine to call pkunzip in this way? Is this a bug of wine, or is there something I can do?
Many thanks for any help or advice.
