Windows program installs and runs, but will not initialize

Post by tkoco » Tue Apr 13, 2021 7:54 pm

I have a program which installs correctly in WINE. When I start it up, it presents a menu box stating that it cannot see a certain *.INI file from a different program. I need the program to initialize a listening port on the network. I looked at the network ports with the tools under Linux and the critical port needed is not initialized (not listening). I tried moving a copy of the required *.ini file to locations where it would be expected (C:\....) . I still get the "not able to load" error message. I surmise that the program in question is making a call to some Windows API.

I have a second Windows program which opens network ports correctly while running in WINE. So, I believe that WINE is functioning correctly.

Is there a recommended way to find out which API is being called without violating the "clean room" policy?
