I test both 0.9.44 and 0.9.45 and found that Wine does not use
PATH environment variables for DLL search.
My test application is a Qt 336 application, QSlider.exe.
QSlider.exe require both qt-mt336.dll and mingwm10.dll. If I copy
both dll to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32, I can invoke QSlider.exe
from anywhere and it works OK.
If I put both dlls to, eg. /opt/qt-3.3/bin. And setup PATH with
/opt/qt-3.3/bin included. Invoke QSlider.exe will give me error message:
err:module:import_dll Library qt-mt336.dll (which is needed by
L"Z:\\home\\kcc\\QSlider.exe") not found
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for
L"Z:\\home\\kcc\\QSlider.exe" failed, status c0000135
My guess is wine just simple ignore PATH environment variable when
am I correct ? Is this a bug or a feature ?
Under WinXP/2K ... the PATH env. variables do work ... but not Wine.
Can someone confirm this ? Thanks a lot.
