Wine installation


Ok im using wine that was bundled with my Suse 9.
My distro automounts my windows partition which contain Microsoft XP. however am i supposed to configure Wine to read dll and registry files from windows xp? or is it done automatically on installation?

for example the wine installation created a fake_windows directory and inside the windows/system32 directory is empty. I now tried to run wine pokerroom.exe and the console shell complained about missing MFC42.dll a dll that i know exist on my windows/system32 partition.

so i copied MFC42.dll and all other dll'S to /root/wine/fake_windows/windows/system32 folder.

I then run wine pokerroom.exe and i still see the same error complaining about MFC42.dll

first, pokerroom.com can use the java client to run thier software.

second, i would not trust my money running under wine...just as a caution...

try using the java applet version...make sure you are behind a secure firewall to boot...

oh to answer your question, wine does not look in any other directory (that i know of) or windows parition to locate .dll's. only its own system32 folder.

wine has its own directory and fakes windows programs into thinking they are running in a windows environment...

www.winehq.com
www.frankscorner.org


great resources for wine information....

interestng I have read several articles online where people have been instructed to copy the needed dll's

http://article.gmane.org/gmane.linux...-cube.devel/69

http://www.bartendavid.be/doc/howto/...a-english.html

if wine uses its own system32 folder,(which i believe it does) why is my /root/wine/fake_windows/windows/system32 empty (no dll)???

and during installation compilation i could have sworn wine mentioned something about windows installations it found .

You need to use c:\windows\system not c:\windows\system32

wine will work system wide...

just navigate to the directory where your program was installed [wine directory] and type

wine executable.exe

i cd'd to the /home/norin/.wine dir and yet i still get the same error message. i should let you know, and maybe this is the problem. i have a full linux box... no windows is on this system. but i do plan on getting windows back on at some point. so if anyone can give me more insight. that would be great thank you here

i run a "full" linux box as well. in fact its a SuSE 9.1 / Fedora Core 2 dual booting system without any windows on it.

just type wine in a shell a you should get some options displayed.

if you then navigate to the directory where the .exe lives and type: wine execute.exe

the program should proceed to install via wine...

did you install the default wine package that came with your distro?

I made a mistake it really was pokerstars.com I want to run with wine.
I dont like pokerroom.com the java client looks unappealing and it the game interface isnt as nice as partypoker.com and some other i have played.


if you know any that works with wine please share your knowledge becaise im been trying them all.

If you need MFC42.DLL then go to dll-files.com, download it, and drop it in ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system

then try again. Or you can put it in the same directory as the poker program EXE file.

i have tried UB in the past with wine, and that doesn't work at all. i bet i am missing domw dll or something. the program loads fine, but the interface does not work.

pokerroom is the only site i use in the linux environment.

actually, i dont know if you have used the poker room java client (they have two versions) it actually looks good.

Yeah i have used the java client of poker room and in windows xp i ran the program from my desktop. Overall i think partypoker is better.
