Failure trying to install VB6/VC6 Vs6sp6

Post by pcouderc » Thu Dec 24, 2020 3:20 am

Using :

Code: Select all

rm -rI .wine
WINEARCH=win32 winecfg    ; and set  default to Win XP
mkdir   .wine/drive_c/tmp
wine /mnt/www/developer/download/install/Vs6sp6.exe ; to C:\tmp
wine    .wine/drive_c/tmp/setupsp6.exe
fails with "Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 6 Setup was not completed successfully."

I found old posts in the forum but nothing about this message...

Any help welcome

@pcouderc

Hows about:

Code: Select all

rm -rI .wine
WINEARCH=win32 wineboot -u
winetricks winxp
winetricks vb6run
A lot of MS Windows installers need workarounds to install successfully under Wine.
In fact the key reason for the existence of (and need to use) the winetricks Wine helper script.

Please ensure that you are using an up-to-date version of Wine - current release is: 6.0-rc3 - and winetricks - for your (unspecified) Linux distribution.
Debian, Ubuntu and Mint all package obsolete versions of these packages.

What is the output from:

Code: Select all

winetricks --version
wine --version
If it isn't:

Code: Select all

winetricks --version
20201206-next - sha256sum: 0feed209ffbf9d38dd1dd0ed93f9303c12a585077c6efe35ea7525d1004b3b8b

wine --version
wine-6.0-rc3
Then you haven't followed my advice - to update your packages! :roll:

Thanks
Bob

Exact...
(I had installed stable version 5.0.3....)
But after correction, I have the same message...
vb6run intalls correctly, but when I try to install setupsp6.exe, it stops with this message.
Thank you anyway !

You may not like this answer but looking at https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33037

... you may have better luck with wine-staging rather than stable or devel. Or it still may fail, the microsoft installers are tricky and there aren't any recent reports on appdb: https://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager. ... n&iId=4647

To be clear, you're trying to install Visual Studio, you don't just need the runtime? Because that's much easier. :)
