Following an error message it seems my problem is that I have a 64 bit Ubuntu 12.04 system and wine should be compiled in 32 bits.
I followed instructions in http://wiki.winehq.org/WineOn64bit and built wine in a 32 bit chroot (applying the USB patches) and everything seemed to build okay.
I had to delete my .wine directory and reinstall my application. It installed okay.
However the problem persists: the application cannot find the USB ports.
My application is Full Gauge's SITRAD Local application ( http://www.sitrad.com/ ) connected to a Sitrad CONV32 RS485 to USB converter via a USB port.
It seems my better option right now is tu buy a MS Windows License.
I suggest to install VirtualBox:
I also recommend installing VirtualBox Extension Pack & Guest Additions.Code:sudo apt-get install virtualbox
Cost is not a big issue (a rather have a fully licensed Win7 than a test licensed Win8 system if I cannot get it running on a really free environment)
The problem is that it seems to be too many small issues, and patches and modules that need to be installed first that I'm not sure that it is worth the trouble (for now).
I will spend another half day trying to get it work on a 32-bit Ubuntu with an USB-patched Wine.
Windows 8 to Remove Zune Support To bad that USB support is still considered unfinished by the Wine developers, otherwise a Wine release with USB support could have made things much easier.
How experimental is the USB support implementation in Wine? Are the USB patches based on making Wine use the Windows API for USB support?
I'm hoping these are current instructions?
