WhosIP freezing when i try to get any hostname

Post by cavernosaspider » Sat Jul 24, 2021 1:39 am

I have wine-5.0.3, Pop!_OS 21.04.
Trying to run this program: https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/whosip.html
When i run the executable alone with wine whosip.exe it outputs everything fine, but adding any hostname like wine whosip.exe google.com it doesn't output anything and the only way to get out is killing it.
I tried changing winecfg to Windows XP but it didn't work, using wineconsole didn't work too

I tried it and got the same results as you.

You're lucky. This bug has just been fixed in the git version of Wine.
You can either build it yourself or wait for version 6.14
