I have Software CD's for various MUST have programs that run on Windows and I have installed Wine and Winetricks. I've update all and added " exe. " and even added " setup.exe " to the Libraries of Wine configuration.
When I insert the Software CD into the drive it shows up on the Desktop. It does not automatically start...wish... If I try to " open with autostart
" a window pops up stating, "This medium contains software intended to be automatically started. Would you like to run it?
" I click "Run
", then another pop up, " Error autorunning software" "Cannot find the autorun program"
So I then right click on the desktop icon to show the CD's files, find the " setup.exe
" to which I "open with Wine Windows Program Loader
" First mini window pops up with “ Setup.ini
”, then “ Windows Installer
“ mini window, and then it stops at third mini window, " Windows Installer" " The Windows Installer Service could not be accessed. This can occur if you are running Windows in Safe Mode (NO, Only Linux on this entire computer) or if the Windows Installer is not correctly installed...."
So, I've uninstalled Wine and Winetricks, restarted, then re-installed Wine first, update using Update Manager, restart. Then I reinstall Winetricks, update using Update Manager, restart. No changes.
Any attempts at updating the system using Update Manager keeps giving the following message after completion...
“ W: Failed to fetch http://packages.medibuntu.org/dists/precise/Release.gpg
Could not resolve 'packages.medibuntu.org'
W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead. “
I need to run these software CD's to install this software on this computer. They are for printer, camera and movie software. I need to have this serious movie creating and editing software. Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated. DnC...
