Well Then What to use Instead,
A "howto" for running delphi programs under wine
mentions to install following
1> Base Setup (Notes As Follows)
Select the option Create a fake Windows drive and confirm,
answer YES to the question Remove existing Wine configuration?.
Click the OK button to confirm the path of the CD ROM in /etc/fstab
(or change it, if this isn't correct) and to answer the questions What's
your username? and What's your organization? you can fill in some
information, like, user and home (if necessary the information can be
changed in the file /~wine/system.reg). Wait for the confirmation Fake
Windows drive created in ~/.wine. Click in the OK button again and
wait for the Base Setup menu of WineTools.
The last procedure has created our Fake, with certain changes created
when Wine is started. These changes may be altered using WineCfg and
regedit. Some changes may be, for example, certain file entries in ~/.wine
/*.reg and some files in the directory ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32.
Our Fake is (or should be!) prepared to be a Windows 98, the best to
run our applications."
3> Microsoft foundation Classes 4.x
4> Internet Explorer 6.0 SP1
Which will install almost all components of IE6 and Media Player 6.4
5> Windows Installer
6> Visual Basic 6 Runtime
7> Visual C++ run-time English
8> MDAC 2.8 and Jet 4.0 SP8 English
9> Microsoft TrueType core fonts (Notes as Follows)
Now let's install the Microsoft TrueType core fonts. Go to the WineTools
Base Setup menu, select the option True Type Font Arial, click OK,
wait for the download to complete, accept the license terms and finish
the installation of this font family. After this, select the
Microsoft TrueType core fonts the third option in the WineTools
Main Menu and proceed with the installation of all available fonts
in the same way.
Can u Help in this situation
Thanks And Best Regards
