Thread: adwords editor ubuntu

  1. #11

    Re: adwords editor ubuntu

    Good news, folks.

    I'd hit the same roadblocks as above, reaching the 'Couldn't Load XPCOM' error after a successful install (Thank you, Jonathan Métillon). The solution though, is described at the bottom of this page:

    http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManage...estingId=18654 (courtesy of a saint called Xin).

    At issue are two missing windows files:


    msvcp71.dll
    msvcr71.dll

    By googling the file name, I found options that allow you to download those two files. That is what I did, though if you have a windows machine, you can install Adwords Editor on it, then look in c:/Windows/system32. Once you have these files, then:


    ...copy them to .wine/drive_c/windows/system32 under your home director [Note that on my computer, I had to copy them to /home/username/.wine/dosdevices/c:/windows/system32 ]

    6) start winecfg [I just type winecfg in terminal]

    7) click on libraries tab. Add those two libraries. Set to 'native,builtin'. When adding libraries, simple type in the name(without .dll) and click on add.

    8) try 'wine adwords_editor.exe' again, and after 10 seconds of loading, it should work!

    Also note that in terminal, I had to change directory to /home/username/.wine/dosdevices/c:/Program Files/Google/Google AdWords Editor before typing 'wine adwords_editor.exe' but by this point, the Adwords Editor entry under Wine in my Main Menu was working fine.

    I am running Ubuntu 9.04 and using Adwords Editor 7.0.

    Thanks to everyone above for helping me figure this out.

    Re: adwords editor ubuntu

    New adwords editor 7.5 does not function under 9.04. After started, it displays
    multiple runtime errors R6034 followed by "Couldn't load XPCOM".
    In the console log i see:
    ...
    fixme:actctx****_depend_manifests Could not find dependent assembly L"Microsoft.VC80.CRT"

    The above trick with replacing DLLs doesn't help anymore. Any ideas?

    Solution (tested on Ubuntu 9.04):

    apt-get install cabextract
    wget http://www.kegel.com/wine/winetricks
    chmod +x winetricks
    ./winetricks vcrun2005 vcrun2005sp1

    Now wine adwords_editor.exe works.


    My questions. Do you have to type sudu to assume administrative powers? From what I am understanding from Ubuntu Kung Fu, root administrative powers precede the command 'apt-get'.

    how exactly do you enter the prompts outlined here?

    line by line?
    apt-get install cabextract
    then
    wget http://www.kegel.com/wine winetricks

    or do you enter all the text as one long prompt?

    Does this make sense?

    I am running release 8.10 Intrepid Ibex.

    Re: adwords editor ubuntu

    Google Adwords Editor is the only application that I have missed since I switched to Linux. I have tried this in the past, with no success, but now, it works!! Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. Here is exactly what I did:

    1. Installed Wine. From the terminal:

    $ sudo apt-get install wine

    2. Then I found the latest version information for Wine and followed the guide here (in my case for Hardy):

    http://www.winehq.org/download/deb

    3. I waited for Ubuntu Update Manager to tell me I had an update and then let it install.

    4. Next I ran "Configure Wine", which on my system is:

    Applications -> Wine -> Configure Wine

    5. Wine Config threw an alert that I needed something (sorry missed what it was) but it proceeded to download it. I let it finish. Now my Wine version (under the "About" tab) is: Wine 1.1.36

    6. Back to the terminal, I navigated to the "C:" drive, which on my system is:

    $ cd ~/.wine/drive_c

    7. Created a directory for the Adwords Editor installation files:

    $ mkdir ADWE_Install

    8. Found the latest Windows version of Adwords Editor on the Google site, and downloaded it to the directory I created. Just "Google it" and download to the right place.

    9. Changed to the install directory:

    $ cd ADWE_Install

    10. Confirmed that the file is there, by:

    $ ls

    The installation file is: adwords_editor_en-US.msi

    11. Typed the following to install:

    msiexec /i adwords_editor_en-US.msi

    12. Followed the instructions, accepted the license etc.

    13. Ran Adwords Editor:

    Applications -> Wine -> Programs -> Google Adwords Editor -> Adwords Editor

    That's it!! It works. At least on my system. The fonts look like hell, but I don't care.

    This is my first post. I really hope this helps somebody.

    Re: adwords editor ubuntu

    After entering the msiexec command, an alert pops up: "Invalid command line parameters". What can be the cause? Thanks in advance.
    (I am using Lucid, all updates installed, etc.)

    I can confirm that gual0s' solution also works with Ubuntu 10.04
