Post by air0forceb914 » Thu Aug 01, 2019 2:10 pm

I tried to install or reinstall my vc++6, at setup up, it request latest window service pack
where I can get it?
I ever download and install Vs6sp6.exe;
but now when I tried to execute it, it ask which location I should install it, and when I click browse, it only show (Desktop->My Computer, and highlight either, won't work)(same as at setup stage of Vc++6, when it ask need latest window service pack, after I click browser, it only show Desktop->My Computer, and highlight either won't work)

I am at ubuntu 19.04, but using its 4.0.20 kernel

the reason I like to restall it because after I upgrade some 19.04 upgrade, vc++6 ide at compile stage(even as simple as helloWorld.c) response error: can not start tool (vcspawn ., ....etc.) I am at wine 4.10 32bits; same as that vc set up and Vs6sp6.exe file)

plz help
/* my previous post's question still not be solved;
hope some one try on his system with wine on linux or just at 32bit windows; using whichever visual c/c++ compiler to compile from c code, cannon.zip at

You can't install service packs inside wine, but you can change the windows version in winecfg. Did you already try that? Make sure to use a clean WINEPREFIX for that.
If that doesn't help, is there a free version of vc++6 we could try with?

so, I remove them all, and try to reinstall.
I meet problem
vc++6, (.exe); it generate a subdirectory at place I execute that vc++6
in its subdirectory, it have SETUP.EXE
when I run it under wine
it ask (Install lastest window service pack) then (locate disk 1 of Microsoft visual c++ 6 standard edition)

so, what shoud I response it?

I tried your suggestion run winecfg; but I don't know which one is I should choose and in my ~/.wine/drive_c/users/eric/Desktop/
I have some files which is the result I execute Vs6sp6.exe (after download)

that visual c/c++ 6.0 standard edition can be download at here
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... px?id=9183


[url] https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/downloa ... px?id=9183


so you have plenty info/tool to test by yourself as mine. (/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=9183)

so, I am waiting to see your test result
install
compile / run simple hello world.c
compile /run cannon.c from cannon.zip from the first link to this topic.

then report/post what you get(detailed platform/config info needed)

thx a lot in advance, see you again soon
