Noob problem - The program winevdm.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close

Post by cajunbbgun » Sun Aug 01, 2021 6:36 pm

Thanks for any help; I am a Noob
The program I want to install is an old 32 bit Windows and Wine starts the installation wizard ok, but then crashes on the first wizard window and pops up the serious error message.
I'm running Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS
wine-5.0 (Ubuntu 5.0-3ubuntu1)
Here's the error log.
Unhandled exception: page fault on execute access to 0x424a00b5 in 32-bit code (0x424a00b5).

Does it make a difference if you use a 32-bit wineprefix set to Windows XP (or less)?

Code: Select all

WINEPREFIX=~/wine-test WINEARCH=win32 wine winecfg
WINEPREFIX=~/wine-test wine <installer.exe>
WINEPREFIX=~/wine-test wine <program.exe>
Does the program work with Wine 6.14?

What is the name of the program?
You don't actually want to say that you ran Wine as the root user, do you? ... as_root.3F
