Need hel getting rid of “program error” window

Post by Glr8a » Wed Nov 13, 2019 1:59 am

Hi,
Hope someone could help me..

Im running wine in ubuntu 18.04 wverythings works fine, but the program I use, seldomly crashes showing the “program error pop up window”


I do not mind the program crashing seldomly, but i really want to gert rid of that pop up program window so that it doesn't appear when it crashes.

Any idea on how to disable this “error window”??

hope someone can give me a hand on this!

Thank you !

The program error reads

PROGRAM ERROR
The program nameoftheprogram.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close, we are sorry about the inconvenience.

This might be caused Buy a problem in the program or a defficiency in wine.

I wonder why the command in the Wiki is:

Code: Select all

sh winetricks nocrashdialog 
Have you also tried the following command?

Code: Select all

winetricks nocrashdialog

Thanks, indeed I have tried both commands, but after a while the "program error " returns, is there something else I could try??

Perhaps it is easier to resolve the crash in the program.
Can you indicate which program it is and when the crash occurs?
