I want to run EssentialPIM.exe from my SD drive. I click on it and nothing happens.


I downloaded Essential PIM from essentialpim.com, followed the directions and it won't run. The terminal will show up for about 3 seconds with the field blank then disappears and nothing. I tried going into the terminal and type cd /media and then ls -d */ but I can't see the directory "Essential PIM" where the .exe file is located.

1. are you using the portable version or the desktop version of essentialpim?
2. do you have Wine installed?

If you do have Wine installed, it may not be configured correctly to run the app.
And not all Windows apps will run under Wine.

open synaptic package manager and type "wine" in the search-box...if it is not installed, proceed to mark it for installation and apply changes...
once it is installed try running your win executable again.
anyway, you might find this page helpful...

just a question
WHY

why use a Microsoft personal information manager
when KDE and Gnome both have VERY good ones already built in
and KDE's is great

I think that you WILL find that almost ALL wanted third party MS windows programs have an equivalent
ALL READY INSTALLED
