« on: February 09, 2009, 08:16:58 AM »
Hi.
I downloaded Universe Sandbox, an installed it using Wine (to use emulate windows programs).
When I start it, a message appears:



Could you solve it, please?

My O.S. y Ubuntu 8.0.4

No, I have a lot of programs from windows running in my Linux, all emulated. Some of them are very dificult to run in Linux.

Please, I wish use Universe Sandbox. But I hate Windows,  :P.

I believe Dan stated somewhere that it could not be emulated. Partly because the required NET 2.0 I believe.

Any way, I'm going to try emulate it with wine using virtual desktop. I think it must be emultated.

Unfortunattly that error messages doesn't mean anything to me as I suspect that icall.c is part of Wine.

I know that Universe Sandbox has run successfully on a Macintosh using an emulator, but I've had no reports of anyone trying it with Wine before.

I personally don't run any Unix environment and so it would be hard for me to test and debug this.

If anyone with Wine experience has any ideas on what this might be or how I might go about fixing this I'm certainly open to them.

I'm sorry I don't have a solution for you.

That's very awesome. Could you give a few more details on your configuration?

I have an Intel Core 2 Duo, 2 GB of RAM and a GF 7300GT video card. I use OpenSUSE 11 32bit, on which I have installed VM Ware Workstation for Linux. All drivers and stuff are out of the box, except for the nVidia drivers, the package being called NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.29. On that VM Ware Workstation, I have installed a full-blown Windows XP, installing the Windows drivers from the hardware manufacturer's CD.

Hopefully, this will answer your question. Nevertheless, there wasn't one application that did not run for me in VM Ware Workstation. I haven't tested that many games on it, though.
