action L"CheckForElevationState"

Post by susancragin » Wed May 12, 2021 6:09 am

I have used wine successfully for years, and with the program I am trying to install now.

But I had this problem crop up on a fresh install of Gentoo.
The install stops with the following:
action L"CheckForElevationState"

I tried re-installing wine, but that did not work.

I also tried creating a wineprefix as user and then installing the program as root. That didn't work
So I tried creating a wineprefix as root and installing as root. No good.

Then I tried installing Notepad++, which is a simple program. That install worked. ???

My wine is 6.6 (Staging)

Does it make a difference if you change the Windows version to Windows XP?

NaturallySpeaking 12 does not run under XP. It requires a later version. I did try 8 and that did not work.

According to http://supportcontent.nuance.com/kbfile ... 2-SP1.html NaturallySpeaking 12 support WinXP 32-bit.

You can create a 32-bit WinXP Wineprefix with:

Code: Select all

WINEPREFIX=~/NaturallySpeaking WINEARCH=win32 wine winecfg /v winxp
Run the installer with:

Code: Select all

# replace "setup.exe" with the name of the installer.
WINEPREFIX=~/NaturallySpeaking wine setup.exe

You are correct. It did install in 32-bit with Windows XP.
Thank you.

This problem was due to a regression / bug in wine 6.6.
See winebug 51143 if interested.
It prevented MSIs within an overall EXE of getting root permissions.
The bug is fixed, and will be released soon.
Thanks for your help.
