No real problem with Wine 0.9. Vfp 9.0 runs out of the box.
Unfortunately the WAIT WINDOW bug and the ToolTipText bug are not solved
since 2003. I didn't try to install Vfp9 as I can access the installed
copy on my windows fat32 partition.
<< DECLARE INTEGER ShellExecute IN shell32.dll ;
INTEGER, STRING, STRING, STRING, STRING, INTEGER
ShellExecute( 0, "open", "notepad.exe", "", "", 1 )
With no paths to shell32.dll. This is what works with Windows, and
should also work with wine. >>
This was my first try with wine20041019, too. The DECLARE statement
raised an error (shell32.dll not found). So I tried referencing
shell32.dll.so directly. Then the DECLARE statement succeeded but the
actual call to ShellExecute() failed.
Unfortunately I cannot check if it works in 0.9 because VMWare
killed my X-Server when I tried to run my Knoppix installation within
VMWare. Have to solve that first. :-(((
