Issues with Sametime availability are server PPro POS and they have to
keep patching it (guess why :>) MS$
Does this mean there is no direction you may have about the output from
the error. I added every DLL file in the sametime install dir into the
native mode (one at a time) and that helped it get to the point you see.
I just wanted some direction on "now what" to debug this. I have a slew
of people who would love to have Lotus Sametime on Linux / Unix working.
Is their some more debug output that I can pull to register where the
failure occurs? I am going to zip up my windows install version and
unpack it the fake_windows dir to see if there is a conf file that has
to be written to (already imported the reg keys).
Started doing some reading on conversion of Windows app to Linux via
winebuild but I think (correct me if I am wrong) this only works if you
PS: I am download Ximian to try it in replacement of Outlook 2003. The
eConfig issue is another migration killer. It uses Java heavily and so
are their any java callouts that I need to reference in my conf file?

I strongly advise you get it working OK on win before you attempt to run
wine, or you risk wasting lots of time on this.

I don't think you'll get office 2k3 running on wine. It uses lots of
only features, that aren't implemented in wine. Codeweavers will
implement those functions for their crossover office suite, this should
to run on wine with a few config tweaks.

Have no idea, look at http://www.winehq.com/site/docs/wine-user/bugs
Some people have reported that lotus works well on wine-20031212, but
the 2004 releases. I you find this to be true, please find the patch
the problem. To do this follow the instructions at
