Solidworks 2009 on Linux Mint 9

Post by asafhacohen » Fri Sep 03, 2010 7:01 pm

Hi all
I us Linux for some two years now, most of the time i us ubuntu ultimate edition.

since version 1.2 of wine I could also run Solidworks 2009.
The installation was made by the instruction on the AppDB:

http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.p ... &iId=18101

Now I an trying to us Linux Mint 9 ( ubuntu 9.10 )

I installed wine 1.2 and tried to install Solidworks like I did before on Ubuntu.
The installation ends with no errors, but the software refuse to run.
When i dabble click the solidworks icon on the desktop, i get : Starting solidworks , and after some 3 seconds its vanish, and thats all.

I tried the installation in Ubuntu again and under its works just fine.

Any idea what is the reason for this?

You either need to protect the space in that pathname
(with quotes or a backslash), or cd to the directory before
running the program.

Hi, and tanks for the tip... I have learned something new.

BUT
still I get the same ERROR:

Code: Select all

assaf@assaf-laptop ~ $ wine /home/assaf/.wine/drive_c/"Program Files"/SolidWorks/swspmanager.exe
assaf@assaf-laptop ~ $ err:module:attach_process_dlls "odbc32.dll" failed to initialize, aborting
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\Program Files\\SolidWorks\\SLDWORKS.exe" failed, status c0000005

Change directories to where the program is installed and then run it:

cd $HOME/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/Solidworks
wine swspmanager.exe

Does this program connect to a database? You may need to configure the
DSN before attempting to connect to it.

You forgot the cd at the beginning.

Try installing the native odbc32.dll? Not sure if it's supllied in the MDAC thingy or not.
