Dear colleagues:
I'm trying to run a specific Windows application in a PC running Linux Red Hat 9.0.
This is an application specially developed to high security e-mailing systems.
I installed CrossOver Office that allows to install some windows applications and I had some success.
I tried with win and the same... some success.
The case is... when I run the e-mail application we're developed, wine reports a lot of lines as:
"No debug information for C:WINDOWSSYSTEMfilename.dll"

I understand that we had not installed a lot of dlls our application needs to run.
for this, I tried to install Windows 98 using CrossOver Office but it can not install Windows 98 neither Win 95.
I think I'm bored of this, and I think it has not a solution.
But I came here triyng to find a genius who can give me a little help to install Windows into the Linux PC.
Is it possible?????

I hope someone can help me.
In other way, I think I will throw to the trash this Linux PC (CPU, monitor, keyboard and mouse) smile.gif
Thank you!!!!

Hey, Try VMware, it cost a little, but it'll work for sure.

vmware will work to install a windows 98 into linux if you just want to run the application on your PC

... but

if you are trying to develope a version of the application to run on Linux, this won't be much help (as having a requirement to install vmware to run your application on linux is really just running it on windows).

Well, if all you need is some .dll files, why not just download and install them. A few sites offering them are:

http://www.dll-files.com

http://www.dll-downloads.com

http://pacosdrivers.com/dll.asp

http://www.useyourbrain.co.uk/computing-mi...ssing-files.htm

Or, use one of the excellent and secure Linux e-mail programs and forget about Windows, .dll files, and all the rest of that nonsense.
