i'm trying to get the application MICROWIN STEP 7 (version 3.1 SP2) from
siemens to run. it's a tool which can program siemens simatic S7 through
different devices, among others via serial port ppi cabel.
the problem is this: the application installs fine, but when i try to
install a software device interface (the interface to the serial port,
for example), nothing happens. the application doesn't hang, it just
doesn't add the device interface.
i assume that the problem is the serial device access under wine. i've
already added these lines to the configuration file in hope of solving
unfortunately, this still hasn't brought me anywhere. above lines should
allow applications a direct read/write access to the port 0x3F8-0x3FF,
right? if not, how would i allow a direct access to my serial devices?
thanks for the help!
