Cannot install vcrun6 or mfc42 using winetricks /Ubuntu10.04

Post by nanomir » Tue May 18, 2010 12:13 am

Hi all,

Please help with this - I'm looking anywhere for a solution, but I cannot find any references anywhere.

Wine basically installs and runs OK (i.e. can run Notepad etc), but then I try to install vcrun6 or mfc42 and this is what I get:

Code: Select all

$ cat /etc/issue
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS \n \l

$ uname -a
Linux mypc 2.6.32-22-generic #33-Ubuntu SMP Wed Apr 28 13:27:30 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux

$ wine --version
wine-1.1.42


$ rm -rf /home/USERNAME/.wine
$ wineboot
wine: created the configuration directory '/home/USERNAME/.wine'
Could not load wine-gecko. HTML rendering will be disabled.
wine: configuration in '/home/USERNAME/.wine' has been updated.


$ sh winetricks vcrun6
Executing wine /home/USERNAME/.winetrickscache/vc6redistsetup_enu.exe /T:C:\winetrickstmp /c
err:module:import_dll Library u6?}
                                  u#??????SP??h (which is needed by L"Z:\\home\\USERNAME\\.winetrickscache\\vc6redistsetup_enu.exe") not found
err:seh:raise_exception Unhandled exception code c0000005 flags 0 addr 0x681d4785
------------------------------------------------------
Note: command 'wine /home/USERNAME/.winetrickscache/vc6redistsetup_enu.exe /T:C:\winetrickstmp /c' returned status 5.  Aborting.
------------------------------------------------------

$ sh winetricks mfc42
Executing wine /home/USERNAME/.winetrickscache/vc6redistsetup_enu.exe /T:C:\winetrickstmp /c
err:module:import_dll Library u6?}
                                  u#??????SP??h (which is needed by L"Z:\\home\\USERNAME\\.winetrickscache\\vc6redistsetup_enu.exe") not found
err:seh:raise_exception Unhandled exception code c0000005 flags 0 addr 0x75ab0785
------------------------------------------------------
Note: command 'wine /home/USERNAME/.winetrickscache/vc6redistsetup_enu.exe /T:C:\winetrickstmp /c' returned status 5.  Aborting.
------------------------------------------------------

Anyone have any idea what I could do to fix this?

Thanks,
Cheers!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Does that second line look like garbage characters at your end? If that's
really what it looks like then it seems to be a UTF character-set problem,
or similar, or maybe the binary file you downloaded is corrupt.

Try it with a clean .wine directory, that might help.

i have the same problem .. latest wine folder .. same ubuntu version .. and when installing the mfc42 and/or vcrun6 and comctl32 dlls via winetricks ..

is it ok if i just download the files, and place them in the sys32 directory and run the regsvr32 for those dlls if necessary ????

thank you for your valuable feedback!

Are you using the LATEST winetricks? http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks
has were this script can be downloaded from (some of the Linux
distributions are way out of date.)

No. This will not work. Modifications to Wine's configuration must be
made and the downloaded files should be placed elsewhere. Winetricks
takes care of this for you.

well noone replied back on the winetricks forums and hence i posted it over here after searching for it .. Anywho, this is the ONLY solution, I found yet for this situation [dint have time for debugging et all]-
* reloaded the cloud machine's OS .. same specs .. but instead installed wine1.2, and everything just went perfect ..
maybe the fact that wine1.3 is still beta, not really sure but wine1.2 worked flawlessly .. hope it helps someone in the future ..
