I'm tring to get dreamweaver 4 work on mandrake linux 9.2 using wine so i can ditch windows from our office pc's.
I have read loads of guides of how to do it (franks corner,etc) and am having no joy
I have installed the version of wine that came with Mandrake ( i just installed wine and wine-utils and have not set anything else up) and when i try to install run 'Dreamweaver 4 Installer.exe" it starts to install (i get the progress bar,etc) but i get this message
"The InstallShield Engine (iKernel.exe) could not be installed.
The Folder 'c:\Program Files\Comman FillesREE8' could not be created.
Make sure that you have the appropiate privileges to create this folder.
After reading various guide I attempted to install dcom95 and dcom98, when attempting to install them by the command : wine dcom95.exe i get the following message in the konsole
'fixme:win32:PE_CreateModule Security directory ignored' i also get the following message in the wine windows 'Command line option syntax error. Type command /? for Help.'
i have also tried to install dcom with the following syntax
'wine --dll ole32=n DCOM98.EXE' and i get the following message in konsole.
'Unknown option '--dll ole32=n'
Usage: /usr/bin/wine.bin [options] [--] program_name [arguments]
The -- has to be used if you specify arguments (of the program)
--debugmsg name Turn debugging-messages on or off
--dll name Enable or disable built-in DLLs
--help,-h Show this help message
--version,-v Display the Wine version'
The version of wine on your install cd may a version or two behind the current version (20031118), and even then I don't believe that the installshield bits are supported. WineX3.2 I think will handle installshield, but is geared toward gaming. You might try Codeweavers X-over ,its not free but it might be what your looking for. They do have a 30 day trial version you might try to see if its whay your looking for.
yea, i was able to get DWmx to at least open with winex. Otherwise it didnt work worth beans. Very slow and no text. Just windows and unclickable menu's (after waiting 5 minutes for it to load and open).
ok i have one question and one comment to make...
first, after installing wine did you setup a fake windows drive first? just judging by some of them errors, it doesn't seem like you did this...
and secondly, that dll error is just your human error, it is supposed to be -dll not --dll...notice one dash instead of the two you used...
