Hi: new to wine, using it in PCLinuxOS (most of the users seems to be
using ubuntu); installation seemed to go ok, but trying to run gave
error message about was not fully installed, could not find DOCOBJ.DLL.
I found the dll, downloaded it (in windows) copied to system32, but this
did not change the error message. What next?

Find out where this .dll is installed on Windows and put it in the same
place. Some .dll files do not belong in system32 but rather with the
program that uses them.

First off, what version of wine are you using?
Recent wines come with a stub of that DLL, and shouldn't have this problem.

Second, I gave you a recipe for how to install that DLL:

wget http://downloads.pcworld.com/pub/new/bu ... rdview.exe
cp wordview.exe ~/.wine/drive_c/wvinstall.exe
mv ~/.wine/dosdevices/z: ~/.wine/dosdevices/oldz
cd ~/.wine/drive_c
wine wvinstall.exe
cd ../..
mv ~/.wine/dosdevices/oldz ~/.wine/dosdevices/z:

Did you try it?

Did you check the version of wine?
wine --version
You should be running wine-0.9.57
Some of the earlier ones have funny quirks, including needing docbj.dll.
If upgrading the wine version, removing the wine config file
sudo rm -rf .wine
and re-installing the program from scratch does not work (it should) then remove the wine config file AGAIN and start over using the old instructions exactly as written.

1. rm -rf ~/.wine
2. wine /media/cdrom/setup.exe
3. when the installer prompts for the 2nd disc, go
to another window and run "wine eject", then insert disc,
wait for it to mount, and click 'retry'.
At very end, you'll need to hit ^C (see below)
4. rm .wine/dosdevices/z:
5. download word 97 viewer from
www.pcworld.com/downloads/file/fid,6314 ... ption.html
rename it, copy it to .wine/drive_c, and install it.
6. ln -s / .wine/dosdevices/z:
7. wget kegel.com/wine/winetricks
sh winetricks fakeie6 gdiplus dcom98
8. finally, click on the desktop icon to run the program.


You shouldn't need docbj.dll at all.
