VARA FM on Wine - pdh.dll error

Post by MythX » Tue Oct 06, 2020 5:26 pm

I'm trying to use VARAFM

Information can be found here: ... s_v4_0.pdf

It's a software TNC (think of it as a software modem) for communicating between ham radios.

I get the following error in the console upon loading of the tool:

Code: Select all

wine: Unimplemented function pdh.dll.PdhVbGetDoubleCounterValue called at address 7B032F82 (thread 0009), starting debugger...
From the tool, I get this error

Code: Select all

Unhandled exception: unimplemented function pdh.dll.PdhVbGetDoubleCounterValue called in 32-bit code (0x7b032f82).

System information:
    Wine build: wine-5.0 (Ubuntu 5.0-3ubuntu1)
    Platform: i386
    Version: Windows XP
    Host system: Linux
    Host version: 5.4.0-48-generic
The last time I had a "not implemented" error, someone picked it up and got it into an upcoming build. Not sure if that should be my expectation or not, if not, perhaps there's a workaround at least.

Thanks in advance. Let me know if you need additional detail.

Hi Artix, thanks for replying.

I did what you suggested. It installed, however I'm still getting the same error when I run my program.

I appreciate the help. Anything else I should try?
