Error message when running an install.exe

Post by patrick2 anglum » Tue Sep 30, 2008 3:24 pm

In a terminal, I try to run an install program "swb32c100.exe"
ie:

[pat@pat .wine]swb32v100.exe
I see a progress window (horizonal progress bar) for a split second, then it goes away and I get the error message:

I have also tried:
[pat@pat .wine]msiexec swb32v100.exe[pat@pat .wine]wine swb32v100.exe[pat@pat .wine]wine msiexec swb32v100.exe
I get the same error message.
I am running Fedora 9 and Wine 1.1.5I'm assuming this message is from Wine?
Since I am running Fedora 9, I entered the following command:
$ sudo sysctl -w vm.mmap_min_addr=0
(per http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/AndreasBierfert/Wine)

No difference.

I am able to run Notepad OK.
From my windows box I copied 3 .dll's to my .wine directory and drive_c, and Program Files.
No difference.


Any ideas?

I must be misunderstanding something here.

As I said in my original post:
I have also tried:
[pat@pat .wine]msiexec swb32v100.exe
[pat@pat .wine]wine swb32v100.exe
[pat@pat .wine]wine msiexec swb32v100.exe

I get the same error message.

this is a known (and annoying) bug in wine. Usually you could try a 'cabextract' on the executable, and the .msi file comes usually out (extracted), but here no msi file comes.

From a log i could see there should be a .msi file extraced somewhere in C:\\windows\\profiles\\yourname\\Application Data\\BreakPoint Software\\SIP Workbench v1\\install\\SIPWorkbench.msi
but that didin't work-> no such file.

If you really need install this application there's one work-around left: install with a very old wine-version ( i tried wine-0.9.32), and then it installs fine

VIF_MASK and VIP_MASK problem

Post by gooberpat » Tue Oct 14, 2008 6:34 pm

I tried making 0.9.32 and get the following errors

signal_i386.c: In function ‘merge_vm86_pending_flags’:
signal_i386.c:482: error: ‘VIF_MASK’ undeclared (first use in this function)

Is there a later version of signal_i386.c I should be using?

Good FSM that's old. Upgrade to 1.1.6 and try again. What distro are
you using, if .9.32 is current?

Need 0.9.32

Post by gooberpat » Tue Oct 14, 2008 6:57 pm

According to an earlier post there. is a bug in the current release that prevents my application from installing.

The previous poster tried installing my application on 0.9.32 and was successful.

You'll likely run have problems building (as you've seen). This may
help: http://wiki.winehq.org/ReverseRegressionTesting

Though, it'd be best to file a bug and have the installer bug fixed.
