I am working to transition a primary school to Linux on the desktop. So far, the only stop I've encountered is getting their gradebook software to run. They use ThinkWave Educator. You can d/l the app here; http://www.thinkwave.org/Downloads/twe28132.exe

I would appreciate any help and pointers. Thank you

You can get past that error by installing mdac28 with winetricks before running the installer. There's already a bug report for that problem, http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=13536 .

Unfortunately, the app still won't start up, now complaining about being unable to find C:\windows\temp\twe-temporaryD2D2.twe (and that file doesn't exist). I noticed some ole errors in the console and tried dcom98, but that didn't help.

That's as far as I can go with it at my admittedly limited skill level. If you can find a copy of the file that it's looking for (maybe in a Windows install), you could try copying it to Wine's C:\windows\temp directory and see if that's enough to satisfy the app.

Thanks dimesio. A few steps forward is very helpful.

The missing file is created by the jet libs. Using winetricks, install jet40.

Now upon program lauch, a new error.

Runtime error 3265
Item cannot be found in the collection corresponding to the requested name or ordinal.

Once this app runs, it allows a teacher to input student grades. A file is saved locally then the data can be pushed to the ThinkWave site to allow parents to view their childs grades. Knowing what the app is doing may help to get the right libs in place.

Thank you for looking at this and I'm hopeful.

try 'winetricks msxlm3', then it gets a bit more further for me as well
