Re: [NTO] NoteTab Pro with wine
I have not tried running the NoteTab install. I dual boot WinXP Home and
I just copied NoteTab to a drive I can read from Linux and then moved it to
the "fake" windows folder.
I have two email messages in the archives of this list that give my
experience with getting NoteTab to run under Wine. They have the subject:
"NoteTab on Linux - Re: [NTO] OpenOffice Beginner" and were posted on
January 5 & 7 of 2004. The message on the 5th gives links to sources for
getting Wine to work and to get a basic understanding of it. The message of
the 7th give my experiences with what does and does not work with NoteTab
under Linux. Most of what does not work is easy to work around.
I have not really had time to play since then, but will try to answer any
questions you may have.

I tried that first, actually, and got the same crash, so then I tried the
"install it first" to make sure I had the cleanest possible configuration.

Thanks for that. I did see your first message with the links before I posted
my message, and tried several of the suggestions with no success. I'll hunt
up the second message and see if perhaps one of the things that you found not
to work is trying to happen when I launch NoteTab.

Greatly appreciated. Perhaps you (or someone else) knows what actions NTP
takes when launched. Since my crash is happening *after* it displays the
splash page, but *before* the main window is displayed, if I knew what NTP
was trying to do there, I might be able to short-circuit it. <grin>
