Yardi on Ubuntu
I thought this would be an easy setup, but I'm getting a "records locked" error.
We have Yardi (the old DOS version) which we ran on Windows for many years, but now we are switching over to Property Boss because Windows 8 really hates Yardi in DOS.
I didn't like Win8 so I asked the boss if I could use Ubuntu and got permission. I've used Ubuntu at home but most of my stuff has been pretty tame.
At first I tried DOSBox and it worked but when it loads the database I get the "records locked" error.
It appears to be one of those errors which keeps cycling because it disappears then comes back.
The setup is really simple. I have one folder which is the actual program and another which is the database (had to manually copy the database from the Windows server over to my system because I couldn't figure out how to map to it).
Strange thing is that it only seems to get stuck on the last data file, vendors.
Next I tried WINE.
I tried various programs such as WINE and PlayOnLinux but I can't even get them to start the program.
They won't run a batch file and want me to select a .EXE.
The original batch file has some parameters which need to be passed to the .EXE
I'm at a complete loss on if I could even get it to work.
I thought WINE would be the best option but it appears to be more GUI based?
