Using todolist (abstract spoon) from ubuntu 11.10 ?

Post by talgalili » Sat Nov 19, 2011 11:32 am

Hello all,

I wish to run todolist 6.3.8 (http://www.codeproject.com/KB/applicati ... list2.aspx) on ubuntu 11.10.

I have installed the latest wine and winetricks.
I have tried running:

http://www.codeproject.com/KB/applicati ... list2.aspx
winetricks vcrun2005
winetricks vcrun2008
winetricks vcrun6

Which installed all of the components.

When I went to run todolist.exe, it started fine with the "first time wizard" (asking me where to save definitions and what file to open first), and then it stopped saying "the program todolist.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close. we are sorry for the inconvenience".

What can I do to make this (great) software work on ubuntu?

Thanks.

Hello all,

It has been a week and after searching again, I could not find any solution to this that worked.

Can someone please help me?

Hello vitamin,
I do not run this from the terminal but from the GUI.
The software starts with the "first time wizard" to set up the default behavior. And then the software returns an error (as I've written above) and terminates.

Should I try to run this in a different way?

Thanks.

Hello vitamin,
I do not run this from the terminal but from the GUI.
Do as vitamin has asked. GUI information is basically worthless
without the program. We need to know what Wine is doing to provide
further guidance to resolve the problem, whether this is to load dll
files from Microsoft or to file a bug report with Wine to add
functions that are not present. The run from terminal entry in the
FAQ on the Wine Wiki (http://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#run_from_terminal)
has helpful information on this process.
