GenLog will not install with Wine

  Date: Dec 03    Category: Unix / Linux / Ubuntu    Views: 399

I am trying to install GenLog with wine. I have been told by the programmer
that it works fine in wine.

GenLog runs FB in Linux.
From my FAQ:

Q: Will GenLog run in Linux?
A: Yes. Jim WD5IYT, reports that GenLog runs perfectly in Linux using the
Wine application.
Have fun es thanks for the interest.

But when I try to install with wine I get the following message:

fplum@fplum-laptop:~$ wine GenLog325_Install.exe
wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\GenLog325_Install.exe"

Can anybody help me?

For a start, the path "C:\\windows\\system32\\GenLog325_Install.exe" is broken.
All the double back-slashes should be single back-slashes. And it would be a
bit odd to find an install executable in the system32 directory... Beyond that
- dunno. I've never worked with Wine.

I get a compressed file. In the file is the install.exe file when
I click on it I get the following message:

Archive: /home/fplum/.cache/.fr-asbQpx/SETUP.EXE
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of
/home/fplum/.cache/.fr-asbQpx/SETUP.EXE or
/home/fplum/.cache/.fr-asbQpx/SETUP.EXE.zip, and cannot find
/home/fplum/.cache/.fr-asbQpx/SETUP.EXE.ZIP, period.

Did you extract the file first? You will want to do that. Then run the
setup.exe file.

My problem wasn't Wine but rather Terminal. I created a
GenLog folder, then extracted the files to it ran SETUP.EXE in Wine after
judicious use of Dir and cd in Terminal to get to the exe file. Had to run
the setup twice, but finally had success.
