Application uses non serial USB

Post by MichelSim » Tue Nov 26, 2019 4:04 am

Hi,
I would like to run an windows Application thru wine. I installed wine 3.0 from Ubuntu 18.04. I launched winecfg and installed MFC42 DLL.
Now, main application menu starts. But these app. needs an USB device (an electronic board driven thru USB) which it not detected.
I checked that this is not a serial com. When USB is plugged, linux never creates /dev/ttyUSBx neither /dev/ttyACM.
One entry is created on /dev/bus/usb/003/001, depending on the USB plug.

On a true Windows, these application needs a driver for that USB. How to tell wine to recognize that port ?

You can't use Windows drivers with Wine. So you have to make sure your USB device is working under Ubuntu.
What is the name and brand of the USB device and application?

The USB device has no Ubuntu drivers (neither Debian, nor XXX distro)
That software is driving an electronic board to pilot Laser head. I would like to install and run it on a Linux platform. I already run it on windows, for sure. I bought it ;)

And, obviously, I havn't source code. This application has been developped by the firm which sale it. This firm don't want to develop "linux" based release.
