    Error: Mozilla ActiveX controls missing...


    When I try to run/install ViceVersaPro under wine I get the message:

    "This application is requesting an ActiveX browser object but the Mozilla Active X control is currently not installed. Do you wish to download and install it?"

    If I click no the program exits. If I click yes then it just sits for a few minutes and exits. I thought it might need to be logged in as root, but if I "sudo" before typing "wine vvpro.exe" it just comes up with a load of meaningless stuff and exits. Does anyone know what's going on? And why does wine need anything from mozilla when it has nothing to do with mozilla?

    I can run ViceVersa under Cedega, until I try and save a project - then it just exits with no error messages.

    Any suggestions?

    Get ActiveX from the mozilla site
    http://www.iol.ie/~locka/mozilla/mozilla.htm
    or you could get wine tools which will do it for you

    or compile the lastest version of wine from source which has them in it

    Thanks for that. I tried installing wine from source but ran into a few hitches. I will maybe try using winetools or getting ActiveX from your link, but for the meantime I am testing out crossover. It seems pretty good so far, although I'll decide fully after the free period expires :P

    Winetools makes it a hell of a lot easier. It also has fonts and IE and stuff like that which can be installed. Good luck with it.

    Crossover worked perfectly. If you can justify the cost I can fully recommend it.
