Installin Borland C++ Builder under wine?


Hi guys,

has anyone here managed to install
Borland C++ Builder 5? And if so,
which steps did you have to take?

On my machine it hangs at the initial
screen, when the install wizard says
100% installed, a black window pops
up and that's it. Some wine error
message saying:
Code:
 X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  Major opcode of failed request:  12 (X_ConfigureWindow)
  Serial number of failed request:  93
  Current serial number in output stream:  98
err:ntdll:RtlpWaitForCriticalSection section 0x40d4c880 "x11drv_main.c: X11DRV_CritSection" wait timed out in thread 000c, blocked by 000b, retrying (60 sec)
wine -version
Wine 20030813, no native support (no winDOHs
installed)


Cheers,
Tink

well Tink, i think that might have something to do with the installshield installer bug in wine...so in your ~/.wine/config file put a semi-colin in front of lines like:
[AppDefaults\\_INS0432._MP\\x11drv]
"Desktop" = "640x480"

[AppDefaults\\_INS0466._MP\\x11drv]
"Desktop" = "640x480"

[AppDefaults\\_INS0576._MP\\x11drv]
"Desktop" = "640x480"

[AppDefaults\\_INS5176._MP\\x11drv]
"Desktop" = "640x480"

[AppDefaults\\_INS5576._MP\\x11drv]
"Desktop" = "640x480"

and just for example purposes it will look like so:
;[AppDefaults\\_INS5576._MP\\x11drv]
; "Desktop" = "640x480"

and then try the installer again...

oh and maxut, try answering a persons question, instead of questioning their question on why they would do what they are doing....at least give them what you think could potentially fix what there problem is, and then you can go on and say maybe you could look into such and such a program instead of trying to wine it

Because things I compile in Kylix won't have
OLE automation and/or ActiveX controls? And
they won't run on windows machines?

Yeah, that's a known bug, we are working hard to try and make InstallShield installers behave better but Win32 window management semantics map poorly to X11.......

What gets me is that it does display SOMETHING weird,
and then dies :)

It displays a virtual desktop window. Unfortunately, for architectural reasons, each window usually gets its own desktop, and it's when Wine tries to move around the different desktop windows that things break.

Well, Delphi is usable, though there is a visual glitch with the rebar control (it affects IE too). As Delphi and C++Builder are basically identical, I suspect it mostly works.

IIRC the debugger wasn't too happy though.

Hi guys,

and sorry for the delay:

It installs, it starts up, but it's unusable...
Clicks result in nothing, it just holds the
focus on the project window, you can't
click the object inspector, or the toolbar
tabs, for that matter.

Didn't have too much time to toy with
the settings, though, too busy working :)


Cheers,
Tink
