Code: Select all
GedStarPro will read my family history file from Legacy9 (also running in wine!) and convert it to a database that is usable by the android version of GedStarPro so I can take my family history with me on my phone or tablet.
I was previously running linux Mint 18.2 on a laptop dual-booting Windows 10 and linux Mint.
I am running linux Mint 19.3 (a change from 18.2) 64-bit. However the hardware and way of running has changed quite a lot, I am running linux Mint booted and running from a microSD card on a Chromebook.
What I have done:
As per the old thread I have done the following:
1. installed wine via the instructions on WineHQ
2. installed winetricks via the instructions on WineHQ
3 . created a 32-bit wineprefix
4. loaded GedStarPro to that prefix
5. via winetricks installed mdac28
6. via winetricks installed jet40
In the previous thread this is what it took to get it running thanks to Bob Wya.
The program is erroring out immediately again when trying to open the database as it did until Bob provided the solution,
I hope it was ok to open a new thread on this considering how old the old thread was and how much the circumstances have changed.
Thanks in advance.
Reason for edit: wanted to add that I installed wine and winetricks.
