I posted this message at the tail of another thread but I think it lost
its visibility, as the subject was quite different. Here it goes again:
I was performing some naive tests on my Windows box and got stuck on
something that looks quite dumb... I just can't find the
KERNEL32.DLL library that I expected to be inside the downloadable
"wine-dlls-0.9-mingw.zip" package. ;.(
Can anyone confirm me if this DLL has successfully being build on
Windows using MingW ? If so, where should I look for it ? If not, which were
the caveats ?
Just another piece of information: I extracted the contents of this
package in a temporary directory and placed the notepad.exe executable along
with a dummy notepad.exe.local file inside the same directory. When I try to
run notepad, I have an error message that reads something like:
"It wasn't possible to find the entry-point for the procedure
wine_get_unix_file_name in dynamic library kernel32.dll"
The message is written in portuguese, and this is the best translation
that I was able to do. It looks like any other Wine library tries to call a
procedure from the Wine kernel32,dll but ends up calling this procedure on
the native kernel32.dll. Is that right ?
Well... I really need the functionality implemented by the Wine
kernel32.dll available on Windows and I'm willing to contribute to have this
Any help is greatly appreciated.
