Problem, can't run responsa24

Post by idanlevi » Thu Feb 14, 2019 3:38 pm

I bought software that comes in usb and every time I want to run the software I have to have the usb stick connected.
The software is naturally adapted to Windows and I tried to install it on Ubuntu.
The first problem is that the USB is encrypted in Aladdin's HASP or something...
Anyway when I connected the usb it did not show up, I used the mount command to load it.
and by installing some drivers I was able to install the software.
The problem I have now is that even though the usb is connected, when I run the software it tells me that i need to connect the usb...
I would be happy if someone could help me, if necessary I can attach details from Windows, where the software works.
Maybe you can make a little hack if someone understands I'll also be happy...
thanks

@idanlevi

Is the USB device a hardware purchase authetication device? Aka a hardware DRM dongle.
If so, then this is not supported by Wine (which only has very limited serial interface support for USB devices).

I presume you mean Drives tab?
Again this depends what the function of the USB device is...
We don't really have enough information, to be able to help you...

@idanlevi

See: WineHQ User's Guide: 3 Using Wine.
and: WineHQ Wiki: Wine FAQ.

We'd need a strace Wine terminal log, with the following debug channel enabled:

Code: Select all

export WINEDEBUG=+loaddll
strace wine ... &>~/wine_loaddll_strace_log.txt
as a start...
Replacing the ellipse ... with the applications executable name (and run Wine from within this directory).

Please use the forum Code tags, if posting this log inline here:

Code: Select all

...
Thanks
Bob
