Wine for AutoCAD LT 2000

I've just been trying to run AutoCAD LT 200 with wine on my new SuSE 9.1 personal. The install went smoothly, but when I try to run it I get problems.

I found a website that had some tips for AutoCAD 98:

I get dll errors. In the website, he suggest adding a dlloverride line in th vonfig file. I've tried it with and without the extra line, it doesn't seem to have much of an effect.

I'm a linux noob and I may be doing something wrong. If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it.

Instead of "riched32" = "native"
"*riched32" = "native"
to avoid PATH issues.

wine --debugmsg +loaddll <<your_autocad.exe>>
as the startup command to get more diagnostics.

Don't know if this works, but it's worth the try...

I changed that line you suggested, and I ran yor diagnostic commmand. The output is extremely long and not vewry fun to read. It still all seems to be some sort of Dll thing.. Another thing that I should mention is that the reason I'm trying it in linux is because it won't run in windoze XP. It gives a 16-bit windows subsystem error. Maybe I should be adding appdefaults version + win-whatever, depending on what it's supposed to run in. Also maybe theres a 16-bit thinger somewhere.

Thanks for the help,

OK, so I've tried everything that's been suggested but it won't run. Now how do I uninstall it? I figure theres got to be a more complete way than just deleting the files.

What do the wine and cxoffice capatibility pages say about this app? If it doesn't run in cxoffice you might be wasting your time...

Lemme look... crossover apps db... Hmm, yes, seems to be a problem series of apps for crossover... wine apps db... Hmm. needs a bunch of dll's set to native, shadowed win2k install...

Good luck getting it going...
