OS: Linux Mint 10
Additional Info: Remastersys 3.0.1-1
Testing Windows Software: Manga Studio Debut 4
Here is the situation: I need to run a secure proprietary environment. I'm choosing to run things live in order to have more control, there are many reasons, but primarily a fresh virus free read only boot every time has obvious security benefits. I need to use some Window's software, so Wine has been the choice to run it on Linux. My first Windows program installs and runs fine (thank you), but when I remaster using Remastersys Backup mode (not Distribution mode) the Windows app shows up in remaster, but fails to run live. I went one more step and installed the remastered iso to the hard drive. The system installs, but the wine app doesn't run. I don't know if this is a Wine issue, Remastersys, the program itself issue, or some mix.
The Error Text (when trying to run it on the remaster DVD live):
> Window Title: Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library
> Window Text: Runtime Error! Program:C:\Progr...
> This application has requested the Runtime to terminate i in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information.
I tried a work around. I started the Live DVD with Wine installed fresh (no programs installed to Wine). I tried to install the app and I got another error:
> Window Title: Setup Initialization Error
> Window Text: Setup has detected that unInstallShield is in use. Please close unInstallShield and restart setup. Error 432.
How can I install Windows programs on Remaster copy and successfully run them live?
