You can verify the installation with:
Code:
$ winetricks list-installed

I'm afraid you have to start over again.
- Create a new 32-bit Wineprefix set to WinXP
https://wiki.winehq.org/FAQ#Wineprefixes

- Update Winetricks and install mfc42 and vcrun6

- Install Milkshape

I'm starting to get confused.

Is the following code what I need to run:-
Code:
unset WINEPREFIX
WINEPREFIX=~/milkshape3d WINEARCH=win32 winetricks winxp
WINEPREFIX=~/milkshape3d winetricks msvcirt mfc42 vcrun6


Then reinstall MilkShape3D 1.8.4?

Question:
How does ~/milkshape3d relate back to the installed Milk Shape?

The folder for MilkShape3D 1.8.4 will end up being:
/home/knoppix/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/MilkShape 3D 1.8.4
or in Windows / DOS parlance:
"C:\Program Files\MilkShape 3D 1.8.4"

Is the ~/milkshape3d correct in the Wine Prefix?

The ~/milkshape3d folder will be an other "virtual Windows installation".
You will need to use WINEPREFIX=~/milkshape3d every time you use Milkshape.
The installation command will be sometime like:
Code:
WINEPREFIX=~/milkshape3d wine ms3d184setup.exe

If you want to run Milkshape after the installation:
Code:
WINEPREFIX=~/milkshape3d wine start /unix /home/knoppix/milkshape3d/drive_c/Program\ Files/MilkShape\ 3D\ 1.8.4\ms3d.exe
#or
WINEPREFIX=~/milkshape3d wine "C:\Program Files\MilkShape 3D 1.8.4\ms3d.exe"
#or
cd /home/knoppix/milkshape3d/drive_c/Program\ Files/MilkShape\ 3D\ 1.8.4
WINEPREFIX=~/milkshape3d wine ms3d.exe

You can use almost every name for a Wineprefix.

Hi

I'm not having any joy with this. I've tried all of the above suggestions and I get the same result each time.
There seems to be some sort of "disconnect" between the MilkShape 3D 1.8.4 software and the mfc42.dll file.

Michael B.
P.S. Are we certain the Milk Shape 3D works with wine?

I tested out the demo of the MikeShape 3D 1.8.5 beta 1 version... This appears to work OK for me.

Testing using a 32-bit WINEPREFIX, with either: Wine Stable 3.0.4 RC1 or Wine Staging 3.21...

Installation
Code:
export WINEPREFIX="${HOME}/milkshape_3d_32"
WINEARCH=win32 wineboot -u
winetricks isolate_home
cd "${WINEPREFIX}/drive_c"
unzip ~/Downloads/ms3d185beta1.zip
winetricks vcrun6sp6
wine ms3d185setup.exe


Launching
Code:
# note: to get the executable path - used below
strings "${WINEPREFIX}/drive_c/users/robert/Start Menu/Programs/MilkShape 3D 1.8.5/MilkShape 3D 1.8.5.lnk" | egrep '^C:\\'

export WINEPREFIX="${HOME}/milkshape_3d_32"
wine start 'C:\Program Files\MilkShape 3D 1.8.5\ms3d.exe'

Hi
I tried that. I get the same error about the missing file: mfc42.dll
Michael B.
P.S. Maybe its just a Knoppix thing?

@michaelblucher

You also need to update your outdated winetricks version.
See: Github: bobwya/winetricks README.
(Linking to my winetricks fork, as the pull-request for cleaning up the documentation has been approved yet.)

As for it being easier to compile Wine from source... Famous last words. :lol:
Till you find 50%(+) of your applications don't run...
It's generally better to use a packaged version of Wine (as long as it's not obsolete).

Hi

I've updated Winetricks to the latest version. I get exactly the same results as before.

Note:
Every piece of software I've installed on Knoppix has required a lot of work to get running.

I'm thinking this is no different. There will turn out to be something missing from Knoppix and I've just got to figure it out.

Hi

Maybe this might be part of the problem.
Since updating winetricks, I get the following when installing vcrun6sp6.

Code:

2018-12-03 11:45:25 (4.56 MB/s) - ‘Vs6sp6.exe’ saved [63799912/63799912]

Executing cd /home/knoppix

wine: Bad EXE format for C:\windows\temp\_vcrun6sp6\vcredist.exe.
------------------------------------------------------
vcrun6sp6 installation failed

Note the last few lines above.

@michaelblucher

So you're not using your WINEPREFIX any more?
Code:
WINEPREFIX=~/milkshape3d

winetricks is being run against your default WINEPREFIX here:
Code:
Executing cabextract -q /home/knoppix/.cache/winetricks/vcrun6sp6/Vs6sp6.exe -d /home/knoppix/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows/temp/_vcrun6sp6 -F vcredist.exe


As for the error message... Since all Windows installers are 32-bit (fun fact); it probably means your 32-bit Wine build is broken.

I'm still not clear what the motivation is for using Knoppix?? It's designed primarily for live DVD/USB usage.
It's like another Linux user, posting recently, that had installed an ancient version of Puppy Linux.
It's like swimming upstream through a raging torrent... :roll:

There are plenty of Debian-based respins that will work as normal Debian installations, have a working package manager and are meant to be installed.
E.g. the popular SparkyLinux, Deeplin or LMDE.

Hi

Gets the same result with or without the wine prefix.

How do I fix a broken 32 bit wine?

Choice of Linux distro?
I Trialed 12 different distros before settling on Knoppix and yes, even puppy was one or them.

Unfortunately I have 2 much time invested in getting stuff to work on Knoppix to attempt changing distros at this stage. I'd have to repeat many months of work.

If I can figure out what is different about Knoppix and correct it, I should be able to get it to work.
Of course, that is easier said than done.

Michael B.
