Wine / WinMX


Hi everybody,

I want to use WinMX under Linux via wine.
There were also some threads about this but I didn't found a solution to my problem.
According to another thread I have this in my config file :

[AppDefaults\\winmx.exe\\DllOverrides]
"commctrl" = "native"
"comctl32" = "native"
"ole32" = "native"
"oleaut32" = "native"
"rpcrt4" = "native"
"shdocvw" = "native"
"shlwapi" = "native"

When starting "wine winmx.exe" I get this error message :

wine WinMX.exe
err:module:import_dll Module (file) ole32.dll (which is needed by C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\shell32.dll) not found
err:module:load_library can't load shell32.dll
wine: Unhandled exception, starting debugger...
err:win:GetDesktopWindow Wine init error: either you're trying to use an invalid native USER.EXE config, or some graphics/GUI libraries or DLLs didn't initialize properly. Aborting.
err:seh:EXC_DefaultHandling Unhandled exception code c0000005 flags 0 addr 0x5dfc3

It seems that there are some dlls missing, right ?
Where can I get them or do you have any other suggestions ?

Thanks and greets
Poldi

Hi,

I edited my entry for WinMX so that some of the dlls are now "builtin" and not "native" any more, now the only error I get is this one :

err:wave:OSS_WaveOutInit /dev/mixer1: not found!
fixmele:CoRegisterMessageFilter stub
fixmele:CoRegisterMessageFilter stub

The WaveOutput doesn't play a role, of course, but the other mistake seems to be the reason why it doesn't work.

Any suggestions ?

Thanks in advance,
Poldi

i seen a person that didn't have a windows install and had to resort to downloading the dll's he was missing, so if that was the case with you, check and see if the dlls you have are the same size as these ones, and just to note, when that person got the correct dll's winmx started working again..

also there is also known problems if you are using the cvs version of wine, so if the case of the matter is you are using a cvs version, then skip what i said first, and get the real version of wine from the sourceforge site

and one final thing...heheh i think i shoulda typed this post from the bottom up, but before you try either of those do you have dcom98.exe installed, if not try that first and then go ahead with the rest of things i said..

Hi,

I have a WIndows XP installed, so I didn't download any dlls. But perhaps it doesn't find the dlls anyway ??!?

What exactly does DCOM98, shall I install this under Windows or via the winetools ? Does it work with WIndows XP, too ?

And last but not least I don't think that I got a cvs version, I think I found a rpm for Mandrake, but I'm not 100 % sure.

Thanks again and greets

well i am actually not sure if xp uses the same dlls, but i know that when you are getting the dlls for use with wine people 9 times outta 10 take them from a win98 installation, and add them to the correct spot in the fake c drive created for wine...
as for dcom98...some apps require this to run, and all i will tell ya is do a search for dcom98.exe and you should find it fine...it will more than likely be a download link off of microsofts site when you find it...

Sorry to ask again before I do this :

Is it correct that I don't need a fake C drive when I have a Windows parition ?

Is it better to have a fake C drive, too when I already got a windows partition ?

When I install dcom with "wine dcom98.exe" where does it install it to ?

Thanks in advance again for your answers.

no your going to need a fake windows folder but you can use existing things on your real windows folder...typically the fake drive is set up at /home/user/.wine...and as for dcom i couldn't tell ya where it installs, it is a microsoft made exe file that extracts itself to wherever they specify, i would have to say it makes entries in the windows/system and windows/system32 folders, but to answer your question i have no idea where exactly its contents go.

this is what dcom is

this is where you download dcom

go get:
winetools
and you'll have your fake c drive setup in about 20seconds

Hi,

with winetools I got my own fake drive now.
I tried to install dcom but he said that a newer version had already been installed.
Then I installed my WinMX Client via the winetools and it seemed to work, no error messages or anything like this. I also got a shortcut on my desktop.
When double klicking on it, Linux tries loading WinMX for a while until it disappears (although no WinMX screen appeared before).
When starting it with the console and with "wine WinMX.exe"
the following message appears :

err:module:import_dll Module (file) shlwapi.dll (which is needed by C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\shell32.dll) not found
err:module:load_library can't load shell32.dll
wine: Unhandled exception, starting debugger...

Do I have to tell him anywhere how to find any dlls ?

By the way, I trid it with a new WinMX, it is also installed on my Windows partition, is it possible to take ans start this ? Perhaps also a bit easier ?

Thanks anyway.

get the shell32.dll and put it in your fake windows/system folder and give that a go

Hi,

it works now and I'm quite happy about that.
But I have one question :
I already have some unfinished DLs in a folder from my real windows minmx.
I copied this folder to my linux environment.
Winmx offers the opportunity to resume these files by klicking on "manually resume" in the search window. But running winmx under wine - nothing happens. I suppose it looks for the windows explorer to browse the file system at this moment that it doesn't find in the fake windows of course.
Is there any other chance to resume older DLs with Winmx running under wine ?

Thanks
Poldi
