    Default help having problems running Hummingbird

    Hi Im having problems trying to run a .hep file on Hummingbird.
    The first problem Hummingbird is a win application so I run it under wine
    The Second problem wine is designed to run .exe files so when i try to run a .hep file it tells me it is a bad .exe.

    I also tried to right click on top of the .hep and tell the system to run it with wine. Hummingbird fires up but it freezes.

    Can anyone help me

    Thanks
    Hmmmm I wonder how long before im good at this????????????

    never heard of Hummingbird....where does it come from, who makes
    it...do the makers have a user forum for it....

    there is nothing on it at all on Wine HQ <http://www.winehq.org/> that
    alone should give you a hint about how often it is run in WINE...

    have a look here:
    http://www.google.com/linux?&q=Hummingbird

    and maybe here:

    brassy Hummminbird its a connection software, its like a terminal for mainframes. And I actually found I work around this, instead of running hummingbird in the emulator i found out that linux has a communication program "x3270" and so far its working ok. I mean it connects. thanks for everything...

    yep, that was where i was headed next (when i learned what it was) try
    to see what Linux has that some Jonhhy-come-lately in the
    Windows-world copied (aka: innovatated) and started selling to folks
    who don't know better....its almost like some folks think that MS
    invented networking in general and talking to main frames in
    particular...and, collaborated with Al Gore to invent the internet!

    Yeah I tried everything. Hummingbird does not support any other fonts. I just left it with font 12 and saved the session.

    thanks everyone.
