Thread: Running .exe files from a windows partition from suse

  1. #1

    Default Running .exe files from a windows partition from suse

    Hi

    Have a multi boot system running Opensuse and windows xp
    Have booted up opensuse and the windows xp partition is mounted on /windows/C by suse.

    This is what i have done

    Installed wine 1.x version
    mounted /windows/C with exec option in /etc/fstab.

    Now when i tried to execute a exe file from the /windows/C using wine with this command

    wine /windows/C/Program Files/Windows Media Player/wmplayer.exe - This isa just a example . For all the exe files i get the same error

    i get a pop up saying . "there has been a error running this exe or dll file . report the error to appdb.winehp.org"

    Am i missing something here

    Thanks
    Kathi

    Yes be default the Windows partitions are mounted read only.

    Show us the output of

    cat /etc/fstab

    Someone will tell you the correct entries.

    WineHQ - Windows Media Player 10.0

    It is what it says even though windows may have the correct dll's wine probably not.. Here the suggestion is to use winetricks, other apps will be more convoluted, and some will take many pages of googling.

    Why anyone would want to run wmplayer on a linux system is beyond me there is plenty of native apps that offer similar function and more.

    edit:
    You also may need to play with the wineprefix from my quick google.
    Man first, have a try at Info, have a look at Wiki, if all that fails Scroogle!!!!!
    If I've helped click on the Rep button I don't know what it does but it sounds cool.

    Yes your are right , why would anyone want Windows Media player from with in linux ..but that is just an example which i gave

    Acutally there are some specific exe scripts which need to be run if i need to connect to my office network like Check point extender files and some other work specific exe files which is why i need to know if can run exe files from with opensuse which when i tried i am faced with issues

    As mentioned I think you need to look at prefix A quick google.

    I'm not sure how that would be mapped out, though calling from an installed app from windows, wine would still use its own environment. Now with prefix perhaps it is possible not looked at the exact structure of a .wine folder but this should get you started.

    wine(1): run Windows programs on Unix - Linux man page

    Though an example it actually works well, the winetricks will probably be some dll's here WINEDLLPATH may well help(At least it looks likely). If you can find out how to get wmplayer working with the windows dll's(Rather than the built-in), reckon the rest may fall easier.
