I am currently using a visual basic program to convert file formats from a web based application. This works wonderfully on windows servers, and the converter application also works in linux assuming the X server is running and you are running it from the terminal in gnome or kde. Our web base application tries to execute the command via ssh and it returns the following error:
# wine converter.exe 
Application tried to create a window, but no driver could be loaded.
Make sure that your X server is running and that $DISPLAY is set correctly.
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk "MSVBVM60.DLL" failed to initialize, aborting
err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"C:\\r2w\\converter.exe" failed, status c0000142
There are no calls for a gui in this application so I am not sure why it feels the need for x to be there. Is there anyway to launch wine without the requirements of the x server? thanks.
