probelms with Wine-Doors

Postby hansencomputers on Sun May 10, 2009 7:06 pm

Hey gang,
Just wondering if there is something wrong with Wine-Doors?

In the past, I think with Mint 5, I was able to use Wine-Doors. Currently, using Mint 6, I can not get past the point where it asks for your name, and confirm that you have a MS license. I fill this out, check the box and hit "proceed" but it just sits there and does not go forward.

If anyone can tell me how to resolve this, it would be greatly appreciated.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

No major problem that I know of
But I use Cedega - downloaded at the day they gave it away :)

The latest offer is a Free copy of the Linux version - if you buy software from a approved company.

According to their website, they've had to shutdown the repos (temporarily?) because they couldn't afford it with not enough donations. Perhaps this is what's stopping you using it.
If you have a question that has been answered and solved, then please edit your original post and put a [SOLVED] at the end of your subject header
Hint - use a google search including the search term site:forums.linuxmint.com

Exact same problem here! Just sits there, doing nothing.
Hope we can hear from a guru soon.

emorrph1 was right.
I tried Initialisation of Wine-Doors this morning with success!

PS: The install faq's, etc at their forums are really bad! :shock:
