Running Visual Basic Database Application with Wine

Running Visual Basic Database Application with Wine

Running Visual Basic Database Application with Wine

I am trying to get a visual basic application running with Wine.  It is a simple database application that connects to a remote MySQL server.  The program appears to launch, but when trying to make the connection, I get:


Run-time error '429':
ActiveX component can't create object
Wine is sending out


err:ole:CoGetClassObject class {00000514-0000-0010-8000-00aa006d2ea4} not registered
and similar errors for create_server class.

I also get


err:ole:CoGetClassObject no class object {00000514-0000-0010-8000-00aa006d2ea4} could not be created for context 0x5

Has anyone had any success getting a database program written in Visual Basic to run under wine or see what I am missing?

Any help would be appreciated.


RE: Running Visual Basic Database Application with Wine

I'm no expert on Wine, but that error message suggests to me that Wine isn't finding a DLL that the program depends on - either it's not installed or wasn't properly registered.  Are you perhaps missing a database driver package that needs to be installed?  Maybe ADO or MySQL  libraries or something like that?

RE: Running Visual Basic Database Application with Wine

I used to get a missing dll error.  I had resolved that by adding DAO350.dll though I would not be surprised if it was still a dll error.  I added the dll by copying it into the system32 directory (under the appropriate user).  I did not do anything else to register it.  What else should I do to get it properly registered, or is there a way to determine what dll's the program is looking for.

RE: Running Visual Basic Database Application with Wine


I have registered the dlls mentioned before using regsvr32 but am still experiencing the same error.  It still might be other dlls that are missing, but I'm not sure how to determine what it needs.

What you need is a dependency tracing/tracking utility. Try Dependency Walker.
