Ubuntu: Program installed with no errors but won't run under wine


I have Ubuntu Mate 15.04 and I have successfully installed wine from the .deb package they provide. Then I have successfully (at least with no errors) installed a Windows program by right-clicking on it and selecting the "Open with Wine" options.

I can't seem to run the program, though. I have tried left-clicking on the program icon, right-clicking on it and then running it with wine, and running it from the CLI with wineconsole "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windographer\Windographer.exe" and with wine "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windographer\Windographer.exe". These last two give me this output in the terminal:

fixme:ver:GetCurrentPackageId (0x33fbe0 (nil)): stub  fixme:msxml:domelem_setAttributeNode (0x18c790)->(0x18c8f4 0x33fb88): semi-stub  fixme:msxml:domelem_setAttributeNode (0x18c790)->(0x18ca9c 0x33fb88): semi-stub  fixme:msxml:domelem_setAttributeNode (0x18c790)->(0x18c7f4 0x33fb88): semi-stub  wine: Unhandled page fault on read access to 0x00000007 at address 0xf743615a (thread 0029), starting debugger...  

Any ideas on what might be going wrong?

EDIT Instaling wine from the repository gives me the same error. PlayOnLinux also does not work, but I can't get any error from it.


Wine is not showing the program crash. I have that too. Play on Linux might help but really there is not much to do. Some programs work on wine some don't. There is no specifique way of repairing that. Could you please tell us what program it is you are trying to run ?

If you really need to run that program then you have always got the choice of using a virtual machine inside your primary os (for you mate 15.04). The easiest way is to download virtual box or do it per command line

sudo apt-get install virtualbox  

You could also dual boot into Windows. This would be easier to explain per video. Just search it up on youtube.

Since wine is crashing you also should make sure to save your documents... anything which is open. Wine crashed on me and I lost unsaved data.

Sorry for the inconvenience hope this helped.
