can't configure wine

Asked by Tobias Brodel on 2012-08-13

hi guys,

i'm having some issues installing wine. when i run winecfg i get these errors:

toby@albini:~$ winecfg
wine: created the configuration directory '/home/toby/.wine'
fixme:storage:create_storagefile Storage share mode not implemented.
err:mscoree:LoadLibraryShim error reading registry key for installroot
err:mscoree:LoadLibraryShim error reading registry key for installroot
err:mscoree:LoadLibraryShim error reading registry key for installroot
err:mscoree:LoadLibraryShim error reading registry key for installroot
fixme:storage:create_storagefile Storage share mode not implemented.
fixme:iphlpapi:NotifyAddrChange (Handle 0x10fe8e0, overlapped 0x10fe8ec): stub
wine: configuration in '/home/toby/.wine' has been updated.

this is on a fresh install and i've tried bith the ubuntu repo version and the ppa. wine doesn't install mono or gecko in the setup and when trying to compile wineasio from source i get many errors which i can post if you'd like.

thanks for any help you can offer,
toby

Can you give the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a; apt-cache policy wine

Thanks

If you run:

rm -r ~/.wine

Then retry, is it ok?

i've tried that numerous times with both versions of wine, no dice...

Tobias Brodel (toby-jamesjoy) said : #5

i've also tried this on another fresh install of the 64 bit ubuntu with the same results. i've run "apt-get purge wine" and reinstalled but that too seems to have no effect....

If you make a new Ubuntu user and log in as that, is it the same?

Tobias Brodel (toby-jamesjoy) said : #7

exactly the same....

Tobias Brodel (toby-jamesjoy) said : #8

i've figured it out, mostly... the problem may be with wineasio and not wine itself, i have tried other software in wine with success, despite wine spitting out the aforementioned errors.

i have tried installing various winasio.deb packages rather than compiling from source but they don't seem to work under wine either. wine itself seems to be not broken.

sorry for the noise...
