    TomTom GPS Device


    Has anyone successfully installed the "tomtom home" and executed it?
    (this is the pc software for the tomtom gps device)

    The attachment is a screen shot of the error I get when I try to run it,

    Does any one have any suggestions on how to fix it?

    Thanks,

    Gary

    Try running it in a terminal window and look at the output. It seems like it's not able to load any given C library. There's a change it could work by just installing the correct msvc....dll into your wine system32 folder.

    Thank you for the response.

    Ran it in a terminal. Here is the terminal output:
    gary@suselinux:~> wine "C:\Program Files\TomTom HOME 2\TomTomHOME.exe"
    err:module:LdrInitializeThunk "MSVCR80.dll" failed to initialize, aborting
    err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\Program Files\\TomTom HOME 2\\TomTomHOME.exe" failed, status c0000142
    gary@suselinux:~>
    msvcr80.dll is in the system32 folder.
    Did I need to do anything other than just copy it to system32?

    Probably. Fire up winecfg in a terminal, go to the libraries tab. Now, write "msvcr80" on the text box, click on the Add button, now select "msvcr80" on the list, press Edit, and make sure that "native,builtin" is selected.
