Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

Programmer's secret, sorry. :) (But it was nothing that should affect WINE) Totally get that. Not really a problem for the moment. 13.60 works fine still, and it has more features than anyone would need of Unix for simple file management. I'm going to post this bug upstream at the wine forums and s...

Out of interest: in another topic you said you've made a small change to the start-up process. What was that exactly?

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

edit: Well this is awkward. I've been running the old Wine environment trying anything I can to make XY crash and it won't. Don, your software is too hard to break :eh: I should put a warning on the homepage: Beware, does not crash. Conc. the shell32: Yours are version 5.00 -- pretty old. I have th...

Re: Bring back Classic Visual Basic

If I was a Windows developer right now I wouldn't know which way to turn. You can't really trust Microsoft anymore to do the right thing. .NET 1.0 introduced somewhere around 2002, support already dropped by 2009. How are you supposed to build an application on such a shifting platform.

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

I can probably supple a similar log should the pList@21 error appear. Does that help you any way at all? 1. What version of C:\WINDOWS\system32\SHELL32.dll do you have on your WINE. 2. Yes, it helps. If you have such a listing from the other bug ( pList@21) ... Wine allows you to override the defau...

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

Unfortunately there is a BIG bunch of code happening at pList@21 so it would be a long way to actually isolate the problematic line. Here's the terminal dump from wine when xyplorer starts. The last couple of lines are concerning the error that appears on every boot (proc: IB@160) I can probably su...

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

That "pList@21" error comes in Details mode? Yes, I have details mode on by default. In fact, I did not think of changing it to see if it made a difference. I'll go back to my old wine environment to see if I can reproduce. The good news (I suppose) is that I'm not able to consistently reproduce th...

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

I've decided on a new approach. In my previous setup I was using a copy of my windows XY data folder that sits on another "drive" outside of the wine environment. So now I've restarted with a completely clean wine environment and a fresh xyplorer install. What we learned so far: + "Customize Toolbar...

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

Found a problem that most likely will cause XY not to be usable after all. After random periods of use XY will start throwing the following error when changing directories: Error: 13 (0x0000000D) Desc: Type mismatch Dll: 0 Proc: pList@21 Source: XYplorer XY ver: 13.60.0000 OS: Windows 7 Ultimate Edi...

The Wine environment is configured to emulate a particular Windows version. WinXP is the default setting.

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

Copying using XYcopy works fine. The dialogue is not updated in real-time and the progress bar will suddenly jump forward but the actual data transfer is the same as on Windows. Don't try to use "Customize Toolbar", it completely crashes wine. You can easily customize the toolbar in your regular ini...

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

Looks very good all in all. :appl: In your error message OS is reported as "WinXP Pro x64 (Service Pack 2), 64-bit". So I assume I have no chance to verify that I'm in fact on Ubuntu? It's just a virtual Windows box? It must be fairly easy. I'm able to execute native applications from within Xyplor...

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

broken: - tip of the day Wasn't that removed due to being outdated and unused? I think so... You're right. I assumed the initial error was because XY tried to call tips of the day which requires extensions that don't work. More good news though. I have managed to get Custom File Associations to wor...

Re: XY with WINE on Linux... anybody tried it?

The bug is related to the shell column handlers (the same information bits that are shown in the File Info Tips). So I'd assume you also don't get File Info Tips under Ubuntu. I'm doing some more testing today to see what works and what not. When I'm done I will write an appreview on WineDB. XY is ...
