Bad file name

Post#1 » Thu Mar 10, 2011 5:31 am

Lets just accept i'm very very rusty

Ok to have a back up plan while i work out PCC2 i am installing my Plan1 folder through Wine. (apologies Havok, you were right i used wine not playonlinux)

Now at the stage where, when i click on the launcher, the wine window opens with vgap in the centre. Normally from here you would simply click away and play, but in the middle i get a smaller grey box with winplan across the top an exclamation mark and a message "bad file name"

When i click "OK" winplan closes / disappears and so does the wine window.
I know i have had a similar experience in the past (in windows)but cannot remember the solution.

Any ideas ??


note:
- same folder installed under winxp works fine
-path is /home/six/.wine/Plan1/winplan.exe

Does it say what the "bad file" is in the error message?

Solved:

I went back to playonlinux and did an unsupported install, told it to use wine tricks and chose a few windows apps/etc i thought it needed.

Once it had installed all of these i then pointed it to winplan.exe in my Plan1 folder.

Running as smooth as now, tho it will be awhile before i can test whether vcr's work or not.


It's all coming back to me... well i hope lol
