Wine 1.1.42

April 12th, 2010 by

Finally updated the Wine runtime to 1.1.42, which normally comes packed in my WineBottler dmg. Updates on WineBottler itself will take a little bit longer… updates will come, as always, as time permits.

Just update your current version of wine by selecting “Preferences…” from the Wine-Glass Icon in the Statusbar, or download it manually from
http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/wine/

Beside of the Wine changes, I’ve updated nearly every lib that ships together with the Wine binaries. Here are a list of all the libs and the changes to the libs.

enjoy
Mike

  2. I’m having a bit of trouble. I’ve created a WineBottler Bottle using a custom prefix for a command line application I’m using. I’m using wineconsole and the startwine script to pass it arguments and it works great under the user that I created the bottle; let’s just call that user “original.” However, when I switch users (to something like “test”) and launch it the exact same way with a copy of the Bottle.app, wineconsole flashes and then exits immediately. It works on different machines with the same username “original” but not on any other accounts. Using the startwine script and wineconsole to open notepad works fine from any account. Any ideas?

    Also, if I `su original` and then attempt to execute wineconsole from the “test” user, it still doesn’t work.

    Thanks!

    would it work, if you use “~/” instead of username? As i guess you are using a hard path.

  4. Hello there,I am trying to get some Windows Educational software running under OSX for our school.
    It installs fine under Winebottler and at the end of the installation it asks if I want to run it.. when I say yes it seems to be working just fine too!

    Thing is, when installed under windows, the shortcut includes a command line argument that points the program to a data file like this…
    “C:\Program Files\Testbase32\Testbase32.exe” K2_MATHS
    it also has ‘Start in:’ set as C:\PROGRA~1\TESTBA~1

    IS there any way to include the command line argument when setting up the Wine Bottle?

    I had a go at using terminal and typed this:
    WINEPREFIX=”/Users/stevechennells/Documents/TEstbase Maths.app” ./startwine /Users/stevechennells/Documents/TEstbase Maths.app/Contents/Resources/drive_c/Program Files/Testbase32/Testbase32.exe” -K2_MATHS

    But nothing happens at all when I press return.

    I’m a real newbie when it comes to this stuff and no little of the ways of terminal!

    I’d be grateful if anyone could help so that I can make some self-contained bottles that I can copy to different computers and allow the teachers to use this software on their Macs…

    Thanks very much in advance!

    Steve

  5. @Steve
    Put ‘K2_MATHS’ (or maybe ‘“C:\Program Files\Testbase32\Testbase32.exe” K2_MATHS’) into “Runtime Argument” when you create the Bottle. It should automatically run inside “C:\Program Files\Testbase32″, so no need for any action here.

  6. Thanks so much!
    Foolishly, I didn’t try that as I thought it would just pass the argument to the installer, not the installed exe!

    Works Brilliantly… thank you so much for your help, your excellent software and to everyone involved in Wine!

  7. Mike,

    Again, thank you so much for your effort! Winebottler rules!!!

    Comment by Jonathan — April 13, 2010 @ 09:34

  8. @mike

    Thanks for the response, but it turns out just using the startwine script WITHOUT wineconsole worked perfectly, no matter what user executed the command line utility.

  9. I have been using a WineBottler version of IE 6.0 that has been working fine with 1.1.34. When I tried it, a while back, with 1.1.35 I ran into a problem. The primary use I have for it is for a web-based application that I need access to (billing stuff….ActiveX I believe). It works fine in 1.1.34, but with 1.1.35 it doesn’t start up at all. It should pop up a new window for data and it never gets that window opened and IE just hangs. I then have to go to the Activity Monitor to kill wine. It doesn’t grab much processor, it just hangs and doesn’t respond to any clicks or do anything.
    I was hoping that 1.1.42 would fix this. But it doesn’t. I have exactly the same problem.

    Any suggestions for what the problem might be, how I can find out, or what I can do about it?

    Thanks much,

    –Adam
    ps Mike, very glad to have you back!

  10. A little more details: The application that I have been running is actually an Asp .NET. It works fine with 1.1.34, but not with 1.0.1, 1.1.35 or 1.1.42

    Comment by Adam — April 14, 2010 @ 03:55

  11. I just spoke to one of our IT guys and I stand corrected. It is not .NET but just ActiveX.
    I don’t even see anything in any logs related to this. When one runs a Winebottled IE6 does it put any information into any logs, if there are any problem?

  14. @Adam
    Txs for reporting. I’ll open a poll, soon. So people can report on programs working with specific versions of wine. Unfortunately the matter is very complex, as not only wine changes, but winetricks and the files, winetrick downloads, aswell.
    Concerning you problem, it might be the “https bug”, as I call it. The browser tries to display a window with a warning about a secure connection, but the window is empty and can’t be closed. It can be sometimes worked around by lowering the security settings in ie, so that it will silently accept it. *UGLY, but if it is for the one site you trust*

  15. Hi Mike! This is a great bit of software that works well in Mac OS 10.6.2 but I’ve a problem when using Winetricks. Every time I try to add something I get something like this on the console:

    ln: /tmp/winebottlerwine/bin: File exists

    Task returned with status 15.

    Clearly there’s a config file involved (and it’s YOURS!!!). I’m a daft Mac user, so I’ve no idea what to do to change this because I don’t know where the path of the config file is kept. Help would be much appreciated!

    Cheers,

    Ray

  16. No luck. I set security to low for the site (it is a site I trust) and got the same issue.
    It also didn’t seem like exactly the same problem that you described because it does not seem to open any window.

  17. This morning I’ve tried to run Steam and Torchlight using the most recent Wine Bottler package (1.1.35) and everything worked pretty well (except for that pesky fire graphics glitch).

    Then, I’ve updated the WINE runtime to 1.1.42 (I’ve downloaded the stand-alone DMG) and all the winetricks and prefixes stopped working (“Task returned with status 15″).

    I think I will wait for a new 1.1.42 Wine Bottler package … keep up the good work.

    Comment by Pietro Cristofoli — April 15, 2010 @ 17:46

  18. I have one question: is there any plan to add an option to change Wine locale? I’ve read FAQ on http://wiki.winehq.org/MacOSX/FAQs#head-cefb8ba3b0f6125fc4f7d095a071cf28cd932e42 but it’d be great if this could be set “globally”, so I can just click on application and run it instead of doing this through terminal.
    Great work otherwise :D

  21. hi
    we need to run our backup software on osx …
    but we have very little knowledge on os X :-(
    can you help us … ?
    i would be happy if i can send you 200$ if you can make the thing running.

    application is on 2 parts … one does filebackup (build zip packets)
    and one does transfer it by passive ftp to backup server.
    it would be great if we have a easy installer … but main thing is to make it run.

    if you give me your email i will send you our windwos installer.

  22. Hello there,
    another newbie question I’m afraid!

    I’m trying to create a bottle of an old educational CD ROM for Windows.
    The CD contains a folder with a file called ‘main menu.exe. and lots of multimedia files, pictures etc.

    If I choose this as the installation file, the bottle runs the CD ROM very well while it is being created. All the buttone, pictures etc are clickable. However, when given the choice of exe file, the main menu.exe is not included (probably because winebottler treats it as the install file).

    If I check ‘copy only. Select this if the file is the actual executable’ the bottle doesn’t work as it is looking for its data files, runtimes etc.

    As there is no actual install file on the CD, is there a way to make a bottle which includes the main exe file plus all of the files and folders in the same directory?

    cheers

  23. I was using version 1.1.32 and it was working fine.
    A month ago I had to format and reinstall Snow Leopard.
    After this installed Wine 1.1.35 and since then I can’t install Winetricks apps.
    I tried 1.1.42, but it it didn’t work.

    When I try installing any app (e.g. 7-zip), the following message is shown:
    “Prefix creation exited with error”

    In console:

  24. Hi, just came across your site. Great work!

    I’m having trouble opening URLs from within my application – if I install IE it does open in that, but I’d rather open them in Safari (ie on the Mac side). My understanding is a bit hazy but I thought this might work through winebrowser. Can’t seem to set it going however. Do you know if that should work, or am I just doing something wrong?

  25. Thanks again for undertaking this effort. I donated to your ie4osx project last year because I need to run ie6 on my Mac. I think Wine Bottler is really nice, but I have not been able to get ie6 to install using it, and I can’t find an ie4osx installer anymore. It always gets an error while installing winetricks looking for

    /Users/mike/Documents/darwine/usr/ssl/openssl.cnf

    My username is dave, so I assume this is hardcoded somewhere and messed up. I’ve looked through the resources in Wine and WineBottler’s app packages but had no luck. Can you please let me know how to get past this? Thanks again!

    I don’t know if the fact that it can’t find the openssl.cnf file is the problem. Seems to be looking or your username as I’m not mike and there’s not mike user on my Mac.

  36. Are the sources to WineBottler available so that those of us affected by its most-obvious issues (e.g. the misparsing of winetricks’s usage) can run something with those bugs fixed (perhaps with patches from us? :) ) while you get a new version ready?

    Comment by Matt Lewandowsky — April 27, 2010 @ 06:02

  37. I forgot which version it is, but one of them makes use of Mac OS X’s mp3 decoder without needing mpg123.

    Also, the 10.6 linker(Xcode 3.2) fixes the bug that broke win16 compatibility.

  38. Hello there,
    I am having a problem.
    My Prefixes that I created with winebottler seem to have stopped working. If I open any I get ‘wine quit unexpectedly. I updated wine itself to 1.1.43 and after a few false starts, one of the apps has started working again.
    The others load up too, but now I get a windows error – OLE error 80004005.

    I am using a macbook with OSX 10.5.8

    Can anyone help?

    Steve

    ps, I’m not sure if this is the appropriate place for my queries. Is there a winebottler user forum?

    Comment by Steve — April 28, 2010 @ 17:30

  39. Hi,
    Thanks for your work with Wine. I just updated wine to your latest version 1.1.43 and acad14 which used to run with 1.1.42 gives a heap error. Reverting back to 1.1.42 allows acad14 to work.
    Should this error be posted to the WINE site?

    Thanks again!

  40. Hi,

    Great job on WineBottler!

    I have a small issue and would like to know if it WineBottler or my installation!

    I have a bottle installed, dragging a file and dropping it on top opens it as expected. However, if I want to open a second file this does not work, focus changes to the application, but the file is not opened.

    I tried with the included Textpad application and get the same result. Textpad is able to open more than one file, From inside Textpad I can open more files via “File->Open”. However, trying to open a second file as I did the first via Finder, does not work.

    Is there something I am missing?

    Thank you!

  41. Hi,

    thanks to the last version of Wine/ WineBottler I managed to have my old MS Money 2000 Pro working like a charm. More or less, but it’s very usable!!
    Thanks.

    I’ve got two questions (running Wine 1.1.43 on SnowLeopard 10.6.3)
    1) scrolling in Money is very slow. If it were in Windoze I’d think it would be because of a missing graphic card driver, i.e. it’s almost as slow as when you are using the dafault VGA driver. Refreshing of the window is slow.. and I haven’t found any switch in config or so to change behaviuor. Any idea?

    2) I’d like to make a stnadalone Mac APP of my installation (just to have an icon, and not the X default one..). It’s stupid, but you know, I like beauty. I try by double clicking the MSMONEY.EXE file, which brings up the dialog “You are about to open a Wine file”, with the option to Run directly in the predefined prefix, or to convert to simple OS X app. But the latter is grayed out. Why?

    Thanks so much, anyway, you saved my life. I couldn’t stand having VMWare just for using Money..

  42. Has anyone else noticed when using IE6 with Wine 1.1.42 or 1.1.43 that there are certain times when the mouse pointer disappears completely and won’t show again unless you move the mouse pointer off of the IE6 window? It appears to be kind of ambiguous as to when this happens. I’m not sure, but it may have something to do with frames…

    Sorry, no wine without X11 for the moment.
    I’m working on a version that kind of hides the X11… but that will take some more time.

    Regressions can be posted to WineHQ, but I’m not sure if it gets accepted, as regression-tests have always to be done with a wine version that you compiled yourself.

    Source cleanup advanced a lot. I’m still not entirely happy with it, but I guess I’ll upload it with wine 1.2.
    I’ll look into parsing today. It’s just the coments that need to be filtered :D

  51. Hi Matt,
    Autocad R14 crash seems to be seen by other people too on the Wine Bugzilla site. Unfortunately, it did ask the poster about doing the regression tests which he did not seem to have done. Of course, since I’m a user and not a programmer I wouldn’t be able to do the test either. But I did confirm that the Heap error was reproduced in both the 1.1.43 and 1.1.44 versions.

  52. Hi Matt,
    Just out of curiosity, is it possible to bottle my autocad R14 with wine 1.1.42 so that it runs in 1.1.42 but upgrade to 1.1.44 to run my other windows apps?

  53. Great job on the WineBottler, one thing though. I can’t find a “.app” file for any IE version on your website :(
