Problems Running NBOPro6.exe in Wine, HELP...

Post by Odysseus » Sun Nov 25, 2018 11:35 am

Hi all...

I'm a user of a chemistry software called NBOPro6.exe
The program works wonders in all window versions, but not in wine-3.0 stable version from Ubuntu-18.04 repository

When I run the software from Terminal "wine NBOPro6.exe" an error message appears in QuickWine Error

Internal Error - unexpected error
file "qwgwnd.c", line 2958

Please, could someone help me with this problem?

That's technically not a currently supported Wine release; which are currently: Wine Stable 3.0.3, Wine Development 3.21, Wine Staging 3.21 (once the Ubuntu packages are built).
See: WineHQ Download: Ubuntu.

Also "edited" terminal logs are extremely unhelpful...
Please post the full thing and use the forum Code tags:

Code: Select all

...
- if including logs in a forum post.

@Odysseus

Obvious first question... Why not use the native Linux version?

Natural Bond Orbital is composed of two parts, NBO and NBOPro. The software that executes the calculations is NBO. NBO is distributed in native linux, native windows and source code. The other part NBOPro is an interactive viewer to analyze the results in graphic form, which is distributed only in native windows.

The world of computational chemistry revolves around Linux OS, because many programs are open source.
NBO receives information about molecular electronic structure system from other software mainly written for linux, like GAMESS, Nwchem, etc...
