IBExpert Personal on Wine - Ubuntu Linux


I was able to run IBExpert within Wine merging this two guides

IBexpert WINE Howto and the using_ibexpert_with_linux_and_wine.pdf provided by my colleague (thanks to Carlao).

0- Install wine from ubuntu repositories (I'm using Ubuntu 8.04)

$ sudo apt-get install wine

1- don't run ibexpert before doing next steps, if you did it, probably you need to delete .wine directory,

2- If you not already done, Install dcom98 as http://wiki.winehq.org/NativeDcom
(may be native dcom should be fixed to work with ibexpert).

3- replace riched20.dll and msls31.dll (copy from a win98 or winxp distribution)

4- in winecfg add native dll overrides for ibexpert: ole32, oleaut32, riched20

5- Downloaded gds32.dll and copy to wine's system32 directory.

6- Run

$ wine regedit

This opens the “Windows Register Editor”. Search for the contents in the
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\International key, and change the value
of “sShortDate” from “d/M/yyyy” to “dd/MM/yyyy” (without the quotation marks).
7- Finally run IBexpert installation
$ wine setup_personal.exe

8- Run IBexpert through desktop link or
$ env WINEPREFIX="/home/USER/.wine" wine "C:\Program Files\HK-Software\IBExpert\ibexpert.exe"

replacing USER with your unix username.
