[Wine] How to get it running...

Hi Mario

Thanks for following my advices!

Unfortunatly, I can't see any direct problem report, as an crashing 
application would produce, like in 
http://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6061. But I'm not a Wine expert.

If I look at the report of the demo and of the applikation, and at the 
applikation itself, then this seems to be a trivial applikation.

I've cc-ed this mail to a person who gave me some advices about Wine 
(Dan Kegel), to get his attention to your problem. Hope, he's not angry 
to me for this step!

In http://www.winehq.org/pipermail/wine-users/2006-August/023398.html 
you were asked to see what helps if you copy the content of the CD to 
your harddisk, and install the software from there. Does it help?

In the worst case you have to negotiate with the company to give you a 
copy without copy protection, if the copy protection is the problem.

The last step, what you can do from your side, is to change .bashrc to


and the to compress (please compress!) the console log file with

    bzip2 -9 install.txt

Send it again to the list (we won't receive it in the attachment, only a 
link to it)

It could be that the thing ends up by opening a bug report and leave it 
so. If ever you need to enter a bug report (we assumed you checked that 
it's not a duplicate), than

   1. open a bug account (ID+password are required)
   2. go to http://bugs.winehq.org/enter_bug.cgi?product=Wine
   3. fill up the version of Wine (0.9.20), plattform (like PC x86_64),
      OS (Linux), component (wine-misc), URL (www.gut1.de), summary
      ("GUT 1 is not installable"), description
   4. after commiting, attach the file install.txt.bz2 in the comment box

What I think is positive, is that the application (GUT 1) is runnable as 
a demo, and no direct problem is reported by Wine, even not a single 
"fixme", "err" or so. It can be that the problem is easily solvable.

If you have a Mac close to you, grab a beta version of CrossOver Office 
for Mac (http://www.codeweavers.com/products/cxmac/) an test it (the 
Windows version of GUT1) there. This is the commercial version for Wine, 
with some configurations where it better works. At least the beta for 
the Mac version is free. If it works, then you know that it's a 
configuration problem.
