    Question Irfanview in Wine

    Hi all,

    I am having some trouble trying to install Irfanview into wine. I've only just started using ubuntu 12.04, having installed it on my laptop earlier this week (as a dual-boot set-up alongside my existing Windows 7 installation). I have followed instructions online: installed wine; downloaded the Irfanview installer (iview430_setup.exe) and copied the mfc42.dll from the System32 folder to the wine equivalent folder. Then I followed the instructions to launch the installation from terminal but it came up with these errors - suggesting to me that mfc42.dll isn't there but it is:

    Code:
    :~$ cd /home/[user]/Downloads
    :~/Downloads$ wine iview430_setup.exe

    Apologies if I have missed anything obvious - I'm still getting to grips with the new setup.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    If anyone else is wondering I have no idea why I have such a random username, I logged in using my cloud account and I wasn't given the option to choose otherwise...

    Hi,

    i has had a look at http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...rsion&iId=7834.
    They call

    winetricks mfc42

    to install the dll. Have you tried that? Open a terminal window and go
    to the place where the mfc24 is stored (cd command) and try the winetricks
    commmand.

    Yes, when I tried to install irfanview in my Ubuntu 10.06 a couple of years ago I had exactly that same problem and had to solve it with wine-tricks. Copying the mfc42 file directly from the winXP did not work as I recall, though it was a long time ago.

    Instead of irfanview under wine have a good look at gthumb, which I find is the nearest dedicated linux application, and the nearest thing I have found to irfanview, which I now don't miss at all.

    I've just tried out that command and it doesn't seem to have worked - I get this:

    I'll have a look at that.

    If you have that version of crossover they gave away not long ago, you could use that
    In the Community Supported list it lists Irfranview 4.33
    I have used it, it does work.
    But I prefer native apps

    I had not heard of Crossover before, but I looked on the software centre and it appeared to be free so I downloaded it - I followed the instructions on there and although it wanted me to register the edition the Irfanview installer started and I now have it working. I think the factor that allowed it to work was that Crossover downloaded and installed Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 (so I presume mfc42.dll was then recognised: now just to sort out the shortcut to the program.

    Most likely free for 14 days, then you would need to purchase.

    Hello,

    why dont you try downloading

    vc6redistsetup_enu.exe

    manualy and install it before you do the winetricks command.

    Ah yes, I had a message pop up asking to register and that this edition would terminate after a fortnight.

    Re: Irfanview in Wine

    I currently need to delete a folder in /usr/share/doc so that I can reinstall an app - the options to delete or cut it are greyed out so how can I delete it successfully (is there a terminal command that can be used)?

    EDIT: Managed to do it with "sudo nautilus"
